Characterization of Magnetism in Gold Nanoparticles


Gold nanoparticles have been discovered to possess peculiar properties not found in the bulk metal, such as optical, catalytic, or magnetic properties. Whereas some of the properties are well understood, such as the optical ones, the magnetic properties are much more mysterious. This chapter is devoted to the magnetic characterization of nanoparticulate gold samples, using a variety of techniques.
