Ag nanoplates, as two-dimensional plasmonic nanostructures, have attracted intensive attention due to their strong shape-dependent optical properties and related applications. Here parallel face-exposed Ag nanoplates vertically grown on micro-hemisphere surfaces have been achieved by firstly electrodepositing the micro-hemispheres assembled by Ag nanoplates, whose planar surfaces are stuck together, on indium tin oxide substrates, and then Ostwald ripening the as-electrodeposited micro… CONTINUE READING
