Synthesis of nanoplasmonic materials

Plasmonic materials are metals or metal-like materials. Gold and metal are typical plasmonic materials. When it comes to nano scale, changing shape or size or aspect ratio can enhance plasmon properties much better than their before properties. He has synthesized gold nanorod, gold nanostar. And plasmonic materials can be applied to detect hazardous materials or biological things like finding DNA. For the future, his goal is making metal mesoporous alloy film and enhancing plasmonic properties.
