Controllable Synthesis of CuNWs in High Yield and their Potential Applications in SPR Based Fields
High-quality Cu nanowires (CuNWs) were synthesized in high yield by an improved liquid-phase reduction method. In each synthesis, both length and diameter of CuNWs could be controlled by changing water bath temperature and the concentrations of reagents. Furthermore, magnetron sputtering technology and spin-coating method were combined to fabricate a kind of Cu NWs/thin-film structure. Optical testing results showed that such composite structure exhibited an abnormal absorption at the wavelength of about 656nm, which might have potential applications in surface plasmon resonance based fields.
