Study of Local Fields of Dendrite Nanostructures in Hot Spots Formed on SERS-Active Substrates Produced via Template-Assisted Synthesis


A procedure is proposed for template-assisted synthesis on track membranes using iodide electrolyte to produce substrates with dendritic nanostructures formed on the tips of silver nanowires. The distribution of the electromagnetic field near a silver nanorhombus irradiated with visible laser radiation is modeled because the dendrite branches are rhombus-shaped nanoparticles. Calculations indicate considerable enhancement of the local electric fields near the sharp tops of the nanorhombus.
