    • Aluminum Nanocrystals 

      McClain, Michael J.; Schlather, Andrea E.; Ringe, Emilie; King, Nicholas S.; Liu, Lifei; Manjavacas, Alejandro; Knight, Mark W.; Kumar, Ish; Whitmire, Kenton; Everitt, Henry O.; Nordlander, Peter; Halas, Naomi J. (2015)
      We demonstrate the facile synthesis of high purity aluminum nanocrystals over a range of controlled sizes from 70 to 220 nm diameter with size control achieved through a simple modification of solvent ratios in the reaction ...
    • Polydopamine-Stabilized Aluminum Nanocrystals: Aqueous Stability and Benzo[a]pyrene Detection 

      Renard, David; Tian, Shu; Ahmadivand, Arash; DeSantis, Christopher J.; Clark, Benjamin D.; Nordlander, Peter; Halas, Naomi J. (2019)
      Aluminum nanocrystals have emerged as an earth-abundant material for plasmonics applications. Al nanocrystals readily oxidize in aqueous-based solutions, however, transforming into highly stratified γ-AlOOH nanoparticles ...
    • Toward a Nanophotonic Nose: A Compressive Sensing-Enhanced, Optoelectronic Mid-Infrared Spectrometer 

      Cerjan, Benjamin; Halas, Naomi J. (2019)
      Infrared (IR) spectroscopy has been a central tool for chemical analysis for decades, useful in a wide range of fields for the detection and quantification of molecules based on their unique vibrational resonances. ...
