DEVELOPING LSPR DESIGN GUIDELINES

By D. Mortazavi, A. Z. Kouzani, A. Kaynak, and W. Duan

Full Article PDF (607 KB)

Abstract:
Applications of localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) such as surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) devices, biosensors, and nano-optics are growing. Investigating and understanding of the parameters that affect the LSPR spectrum is important for the design and fabrication of LSPR devices. This paper studies different parameters, including geometrical structures and light attributes, which affect the LSPR spectrum properties such as plasmon wavelength and enhancement factor. The paper also proposes a number of rules that should be considered in the design and fabrication of LSPR devices.
