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.
