Optical Properties of Ultra-Small Gold Nanostructures

  • Tatsuya Tsukuda
Part of the Springer Series in Chemical Physics book series (CHEMICAL, volume 115)


This talk will focus on our recent efforts to synthesize ultra small gold (Au) nanostructures with atomically precise sizes and well-defined morphologies. These Au nanostructures can be viewed as superatoms and superatomic molecules and exhibit unique, molecular-like optical properties strongly dependent on the structural parameters.
