Plasmon Induced self-assembly
Photoactivated orientation of gold nanorods (AuNRs) incorporated into polymethylmethacrylate and SU-8 photoresist films occurs under red light activation. Excitation of the longitudinal surface plasmon resonance band leads to selective orientation of the nanostructures, revealed by a change in the absorption spectra.
