Omnidirectional absorption in nanostructured metal surfaces
Light absorbers are not 100% efficient, and it is a challenge to absorb light completely for any direction of incidence. Using nanostructured metal surfaces, de Abajo and colleagues show that suchExpand

Strong coupling between localized plasmons and organic excitons in metal nanovoids.
Hybrid emitting exciton-plasmonic composites are constructed by coating arrays of spherical nanovoids embedded in a gold film with organic semiconducting molecular J-aggregate films. In suchExpand

Understanding Plasmons in Nanoscale Voids
Metallic nanoscale voids (“anti-nanoparticles”) are shown to possess radically different plasmon modes to metal nanoparticles. Comparing new boundary element calculations for the first time withExpand

Wetting of regularly structured gold surfaces.
In this study we report results for a systematic study of the wetting of structured gold surfaces formed by electrodeposition through monolayer templates of close-packed uniform submicrometerExpand

Polymer-silica nanocomposite membranes for CO2 capturing
Abstract Reducing carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) is an area of great interest in current international efforts geared toward lowering emissions and combating global warming. In this work, amino-silicaExpand

Angle-resolved surface-enhanced Raman scattering on metallic nanostructured plasmonic crystals.
Surface-enhanced Raman scattering is an ideal tool for identifying molecules from the "fingerprint" of their molecular bonds; unfortunately, this process lacks a full microscopic understanding and,Expand

Optical properties of nanostructured metal films.
Nanostructured metal films of platinum, gold and silver up to 675 nm thick we prepared by electrochemical deposition through templates of 700 nm diameter polystyrene spheres assembled as hexagonalExpand

SERS at structured palladium and platinum surfaces.
Palladium and platinum are important catalytic metals, and it would be highly advantageous to be able to use surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) to study reactive species and intermediates onExpand

Sculpted substrates for SERS.
Sculpted SERS-active substrates are prepared by assembling a closed packed monolayer of uniform polystyrene colloidal particles (diameter 350 to 800 nm) onto an evaporated gold surface and thenExpand

Electrochemical SERS at a structured gold surface
Templated electrodeposition of gold to produce thin (<1 lm) films containing a close packed hexagonal array of uniform sphere segment voids is shown to give surfaces which show strong surfaceExpand
