Optical Properties of Metallic Semishells: Breaking the Symmetry of Plasmonic Nanoshells

Abstract

Symmetric metal colloids, for example, nanospheres and nanoshells, are very well-studied plasmonic nanostructures. Breaking the symmetry of originally symmetric nanostructures induces many interesting changes of optical properties and local near-field distribution. In this chapter, we present the fabrication and optical properties of symmetry-broken nanoshells, namely, semishells.
