The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

A method that enables reproducible synthesis of low aspect ratio, monodispersed and stable silver nanoparticle suspensions, uniform in its optical response and tunable over a range of diameters has been developed. The uniformity of the nanoparticles has been accurately determined using electron and atomic force microscopies for diameters down to 50 nm. These particles are highly suited to applications in optical nanotechnology. (Abstract from: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpls/abs_all.jsp?arnumber=4560065&tag=1)
