Strategies for self-organization of Au nanoparticles assisted by copolymer templates
Proceedings of the SPIE Society
We discuss here different strategies for making arrays of Au nanoparticles using copolymer templates. Top-down and bottom-up routes are considered and the optical properties of as-prepared Au nanoparticles are discussed and compared to numerical simulations. Potential for applications such as biosensors or strain sensors is also assessed.
