Plasmonic properties of silver nanocube monolayers deposited on thin metal films
The present work investigates the plasmonic properties and behaviour of silver nanocube monolayers deposited on thin gold films. Monolayers were deposited via the Langmuir-Blodgett method using a phospholipid as a passive spacer. Interparticle coupling was minimized by depositing at low surface pressures. The interaction of the nanocube monolayers with the gold films was mediated by utilizing polyelectrolyte layering to generate a passive spacer to control the distance between the cubes and substrate. Silver nanocubes were characterized by UV-Visible spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy, and the monolayers were characterized by UV-Vis, and atomic force microscopy.
