Overview

Silver nano prisms

Silver nano prisms have readily tunable surface plasmon resonance in the visible and near IR spectrum.


Significance

The prism shaped nanoparticles enhances the charge distribution around the particle. The particles cab be tuned by exposing to a precise wavelength of light tunes so they change color and absorb at a desired wavelength.
Silver Nanoprisms synthesized under LEDs of different wavelengths.
FDTD Simulation created with Lumerical Software show field enhancement around the points of the prism


Procedure

The synthesis was taken from the paper: "pH-Switchable Silver Nanoprism Growth Pathways" by Can Xue and Chad Mirkin [1]
