Abstract

Plasmonic nanoparticles have traditionally been associated with relatively narrow absorption profiles. But, for many of the most exciting potential applications for these particles, such as solar energy applications, broadband absorption is desirable. By utilizing on-wire lithography, nanostructures which absorb light through the visible and near-IR portions of the electromagnetic spectrum can be synthesized.
