Composite Magnetic-Plasmonic Media Based on Au/LiF Arrays

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


In this chapter, we report a selected example of fabrication of a 2D array of magnetic nanoparticles, realized employing the array of gold nanoparticles as a template for guiding the deposition of the magnetic clusters. Such a composite system, with both optical and magnetic functionality, would represent the starting point to realize, for example, optically active magneto-plasmonic media, with tunable LSPs controlled by the application of an external magnetic field.
