Part of the Springer Series in Surface Sciences book series (SSSUR, volume 70)


This chapter describe the operation points, i.e., the necessary parameters to excited the surface plasmon for the free electron type metals. Aspects like incident angle range, wavelength range, metal thickness, optical substrate, nanoparticle size, dynamic range, responsivity, SPR depth intensity and line broadening are present.
