Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) of metal nanostructures has broad application prospects in the fields of sensing, energy, catalysis and optics. This paper reports a graphene-assisted method for preparing large-scale single-crystal Ag(111) nanoparticle (NP) arrays based on the ion implantation technique. By surface periodic patterning treatment and annealing of the implanted sample, regularly arranged Ag NPs can be prepared on the sample surface. A new application for graphene is proposed, that…

Synthesis and Characterization of Graphene–Silver Nanoparticle Hybrid Materials
A simple method for the synthesis of graphene–silver nanoparticle hybrids on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) substrates is reported, which shows that the Ag NPs completely sandwiched between graphene and HOPG do not sulfurize, even after one year.


Ultrahigh Surface‐Enhanced Raman Scattering of Graphene from Au/Graphene/Au Sandwiched Structures with Subnanometer Gap
graphene.[14,15] However, all these structures suffer from low enhancement factor due to the large gap between plasmonic structures, or from tedious fabrication process. Recently, Zhu and co-workers
Surface-enhanced Raman scattering using monolayer graphene-encapsulated Ag nanoparticles as a substrate for sensitive detection of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene
We developed a surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-active substrate based on chemical vapor deposition (CVD)-grown monolayer graphene-encapsulated silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) and used it for

Single-Layer Graphene as a Barrier Layer for Intense UV Laser-Induced Damages for Silver Nanowire Network.
It is demonstrated that SLG can shield metallic nanostructures from intense laser radiation that would otherwise ablate them, and particular damage-free and ablation-free laser-based nanomanufacturing of hybrid nanostructure might be sparked off by application of SLG on functional surfaces and nanofeatures.
Epitaxial Growth of 6 in. Single-Crystalline Graphene on a Cu/Ni (111) Film at 750 °C via Chemical Vapor Deposition.
A new approach for the fabrication of ultraflat single-crystal graphene using Cu/Ni (111)/sapphire wafers at lower temperature is reported and it is found that the temperature of epitaxial growth of graphene usingCu/ Ni (111) can be reduced to 750 °C, much lower than that of earlier reports on catalytic surfaces.
Red shift of plasmon resonance frequency due to the interacting Ag nanoparticles embedded in single crystal SiO2 by implantation
A metal nanoparticle system has been prepared by 200 Kev Ag+ ion implantation into perfect single crystal SiO2 at room temperature to dose: 6.7×1016/cm2. The system presents quasidual-layer
Polarized plasmonic enhancement by Au nanostructures probed through Raman scattering of suspended graphene.
It is found that single layer graphene is suspended across the dimer cavity and provides an ideal two-dimensional test material for the local near-field distribution and a Raman enhancement of the order of 10(3) originating from the cavity.
