Exploiting the Tunable Optical Response of Metallic Nanoshells


Metallic nanoshells, which are plasmonic nanostructures having alternating layers of dielectric and metal, exhibit a notable structural tunability of the plasmon frequencies. This interesting feature has been exploited for a myriad of applications. In this chapter, along with some synthesis approaches, we discuss the origin of the structural tunability and application potentials of these novel nanostructures in fields such as surface-enhanced Raman scattering, medicine, and photonics.
