The quasi-static approach can be followed, and the presence of gain can be incorporated by replacing the real dielectric constant εm of the insulator surrounding the sphere with a complex dielectric function ε2 (ω). Using this straightforward analytical model, Lawandy has shown that the presence of gain, expressed by [ε2 ] < 0, can lead to a signiﬁcant strengthening of the plasmon resonance [Lawandy (2004)]. 95), the imaginary part of ε2 can, in fact, lead to a complete cancellation of all the terms in the denominator of α and thus to an inﬁnite amplitude of the resonant polarizability.
Aggregation causes a coupling of the Au NPs’ plasma modes, which results in a red-shift and broadening of the longitudinal plasma resonance in the optical spectrum . 5 K to 300 K. Such temperature dependence is more pronounced with decreasing NP size. The temperature dependence of the electron–phonon scattering is partially compensated by a thermal lattice contraction of the NPs © 2016 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC May 27, 2015 10:53 PSP Book - 9in x 6in 42 Synthesis and Surface Engineering of Plasmonic Nanoparticles with decreasing temperature.
This chapter will give a brief overview of the factors aﬀecting the plasmon absorption and will report on the most recent advances in metal NPs size/shape-controlled syntheses (both in aqueous and organic environment) and post-synthetic surface modiﬁcation procedures, in order to obtain original candidate structures for plasmonic applications. 2 Experimental Parameter Affecting Plasmon Absorption Frequency and intensity of a plasmon resonance are primarily determined by (a) the intrinsic dielectric property of a given metal, (b) the dielectric constant of the medium in contact with the metal, and (c) the pattern of surface polarization.
