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)
