This page will act as a library to faciliate sharing of surface plasmon-related publications among the Turro Group and others.



The goal of this endeavour is to get a "feel" for the parameters of how plasmons couple with molecules. Just as in learning any new form of spectroscopy, this is probably best done with a little theory and a lot of real examples. Right now we have the following list of topics:
