Structural and Optical Properties of Gold In MgO: Effects of Shape And The Interface

Abstract

The fundamental studies of metallic nanoparticles embedded in various host materials have been made. The host-guest interaction causes the shapes of embedded nanoparticles, and the surface plasmon resonances of the metallic nanoparticles are affected by the host materials. The control of the surface plasmon resonance condition is a challenging question. We will discuss the interface effect of the systems where gold nanoparticles were fabricated between materials of MgO and SiO2.
