Size-controlled synthesis of metal nanostructures has opened many new possibilities to design ideal building blocks for future nanodevices. By solution-based method, silver triangular nanoprisms of different sizes (edge length) have been synthesized. First hyper-polarizabilities of silver triangular nanomaterials were measured using hyper-Rayleigh scattering technique. We have shown that both linear and nonlinear optical properties are highly dependent on the size of silver triangular nanoprism… CONTINUE READING
