Ultrasensitive detection, biological sensor, chemical sensor, even applications in environmental science, the potential for 3D plasmonic nanostructures in plasmon enhanced fluorescence (PEF) is fairly impressive.
Low intensity laser excitation of solid targets with periodically ordered nano-objects generates electrons with energies as high as 300eV
Our latest image of the week is taken from work by Young Keun Lee et al 2016 whose special issue paper suggests that hot electrons can mediate the energy conversion process from solar energy to electrical and chemical energy.
This week’s image is taken from Jian Ye et al 2016 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 49 205106. The authors from Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Jiangnan University have theoretically investigated the origin and tunability of magnetic resonances in gold… Read More ›
