Chiral and Achiral Nanodumbbell Dimers: The Effect of Geometry on Plasmonic Properties
(American Chemical Society, 2016)
Metal nanoparticles with a dumbbell-like geometry have plasmonic properties similar to those of their nanorod counterparts, but the unique steric constraints induced by their enlarged tips result in distinct geometries ...
Chiral templating of self-assembling nanostructures by circularly polarized light
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
The high optical and chemical activity of nanoparticles (NPs) signifies the possibility of converting the spin angular momenta of photons into structural changes in matter. Here, we demonstrate that illumination of dispersions ...
Circular Differential Scattering of Single Chiral Self-Assembled Gold Nanorod Dimers
(American Chemical Society, 2015)
Circular dichroism spectroscopy is essential for structural characterization of proteins and chiral nanomaterials. Chiral structures from plasmonic materials have extraordinary strong circular dichroism effects compared ...
