Hydride Formation in Single Palladium and Magnesium Nanoparticles Studied By Nanoplasmonic Dark-Field Scattering Spectroscopy

September 5, 2011

Scrutinizing functional nanosystems and relating details in their size, chemistry, and geometry to functionality remains a significant experimental challenge. Following the concept of indirect nanoplasmonic sensing (INPS), the exploitation of truncated Au nanocones with functionalized tips, nanofabricated in a one step, are used as single nanoplasmonic sensors for dark-field scattering spectroscopy measurements of the hydride formation in single Pd and Mg nanoparticles.
