Metal nanowires and nanoparticles that facilitate surface plasmons are of contemporary interest in nanophotonics, thermoplasmonics and optoelectronics. They facilitate not only subwavelength light propagation and localization capabilities, but also provide an excellent platform for opto-thermal effects confined to volumes down to the nanoscale. This brief review article aims to provide an overview of a specific nanophotonic geometry: a plasmonic nanowire coupled to a zero-dimensional… 
Mirror-enhanced directional out-coupling of SERS by remote excitation of a nanowire-nanoparticle cavity
We report on the experimental observation of mirror-enhanced directional surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) from a self-assembled monolayer of molecules coupled to a nanowire-nanoparticle


Plasmonics in composite nanostructures
Nonlinear optics in plasmonic nanostructures
Although a relatively new area of nanoscience, nonlinear plasmonics has become a fertile ground for the development and testing of new ideas pertaining to light–matter interaction under intense field
Noble metal nanowires: from plasmon waveguides to passive and active devices.
Using chemical synthesis, researchers can produce noble metal nanowires with highly regular, crystalline properties unachievable by alternative, top-down nanofabrication methods, which makes these structures useful in nonlocal applications such as remote surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) sensing.
Silver Nanowires Terminated by Metallic Nanoparticles as Effective Plasmonic Antennas
Metallic nanowires constitute a distinctive class of nanostructures that are able to guide surface plasmons in subwavelength dimensions. The effective use of light in- and out-coupling in low
Plasmonic nanostructures: artificial molecules.
An entire family of plasmonic nanostructures, artificial molecules, has been developed whose optical properties can be understood within this picture: nanoparticles, multi-nanoparticle assemblies, and a nanoparticle-over-metallic film, an electromagnetic analog of the spinless Anderson model.
Strong coupling of single emitters to surface plasmons
We propose a method that enables strong, coherent coupling between individual optical emitters and electromagnetic excitations in conducting nanostructures. The excitations are optical plasmons that
Unidirectional broadband light emission from supported plasmonic nanowires.
It is shown that single crystal silver nanowires supported on a dielectric interface behave similar to broadband unidirectional antennas for visible light, which could pave the way for development of metal nanowire as subwavelength directors of light in solar, sensor, and spectroscopy applications.
Silver nanowires as surface plasmon resonators.
It is demonstrated that the nonradiating character of the silver nanowires together with minimized damping due to the well developed wire crystal structure allow them to apply as efficient surface plasmon Fabry-Perot resonators.
Routing of surface plasmons in silver nanowire networks controlled by polarization and coating.
The routing of surface plasmons in silver nanowire structures is studied by combining experiments and electromagnetic simulations to demonstrate that the near field distribution on the nanowires controls the surface plasmon transmission in the Nanowire networks.
Nanoparticle-mediated coupling of light into a nanowire.
It is shown that a nanoparticle can serve as an efficient antenna for coupling of visible light into propagating plasmons of an Ag nanowire and offers a potential strategy for optimizing plasmon coupling into nanoscale metallic waveguides.
