Controlling the surface enhanced Raman effect via the nanoshell geometry


Journal Article

The variation of the core diameter and shell layer thicknesses of a metal nanoshell, tuning the local surface electromagnetic field of the nanoparticle in a controlled manner, was studied. The electromagnetic field at the surface of the nanoparticle was monitored as a function of the nanoparticle's core and shell dimensions. The results showed that the core shell topology provided a useful topology for manipulation of electromagnetic fields at nanoscale dimensions in a controlled manner.
