Aims and scope

Plasmonics is an international forum for the publication of peer-reviewed leading-edge original articles that both advance and report our knowledge base and practice of the interactions of free-metal electrons, Plasmons.

Topics covered include notable advances in the theory, Physics, and applications of surface plasmons in metals, to the rapidly emerging areas of nanotechnology, biophotonics, sensing, biochemistry and medicine. Topics, including the theory, synthesis and optical properties of noble metal nanostructures, patterned surfaces or materials, continuous or grated surfaces, devices, or wires for their multifarious applications are particularly welcome. Typical applications might include but are not limited to, surface enhanced spectroscopic properties, such as Raman scattering or fluorescence, as well developments in techniques such as surface plasmon resonance and near-field scanning optical microscopy.

Plasmonics publishes papers that describe new plasmonic based devices, new synthetic procedures for the preparation of nanostructures and there optical properties, as well their applications in analytical sensing. Papers describing new synthetic preparations and theory are particularly welcome.

In addition to original articles, Plasmonics, also publishes reviews, rapid communications, letters to the editor, and technical and design notes. All manuscripts are subject to critical peer-review. It should be noted that the final decisions relating to manuscript suitability within Plasmonics rests solely with the editor. Plasmonics invites symposia papers to be collectively published together, through the initial consult and agreement with the editor.
