Developing a Transducer Based on Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) of Gold Nanostructures for Nanobiosensor Applications


Article Preview

In this work, we report the nanofabrication, optical characterization, and electromagnetic modeling of various nanostructure arrays for localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) based biosensing studies. Comparison of the experimental results and simulation outputs of various nanostructure arrays was made and a good correspondence was achieved.
