Optical Properties of Nanomaterials 09: Applications of metal nanoparticles

Lecture by Nicolas Vogel. This course gives an introduction to the optical properties of different nanomaterials. We derive fundamental relations describing the interactions between materials and electromagnetic radiation and discuss the resulting optical properties for dielectric, metallic and semiconducting particles.

This chapter discusses applications of the optical properties of metal nanoparticles, including:
Sensing of the dielectric environment
Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy
Localized heating
Bubble formation
Pregnancy tests
