Surface Plasmon Images



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:

General Introduction to Plasmons (Steffen Jockusch) [.ppt]
    Nonmathematical overview. The issues of metal surfaces and metal nanoparticles would be described. The introduction would have the context of searching for use of plasmons to enhance measurements of interest to the group, to brain storm possible applications to forbidden spectroscopic transitions and of presenting real examples of large enhancements with molecules of interest to the group.
