Paper Abstract

Silver (Ag) nanoparticles (NPs) have unique optical, electrical, and thermal properties that are being incorporated into products ranging from optical communication devices and photovoltaics to biological, DNA and other chemical sensors. The optical properties of silver nanoparticles are strongly influenced by their shape, size, distribution, and surrounding environment. One of the main challenges is to maximize the coupling efficiency of incident radiation into plasmonic resonances. In this paper, we present a method to optimize the selection of mono-dispersed Ag NPs size and the wavelength of incident radiation to enhance coupling efficiency. The results are supported by experimental measurements of optical properties of mono-dispersed silver nanoparticles.
