Yamada, Two-dimensional arrays of plasmonic metal nanoparticles prepared by bottom up methods for sensing and photoelectrochemical applications, SPIE Conference 11797: Plasmonics: Design, Materials, Fabrication, Characterization, and Applications XIX, 2021.08, Metal nanostructures, such as gold and silver nanoparticles, exhibit local surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) when the resonant light is irradiated. Since photoenergy can be localized on the surface of the nanostructures due to LSPR, they are expected to be applied to highly sensitive sensors, highly efficient solar cells, and so on. It is known that the plasmonic properties depend on the size, shape, metal species, surrounding medium, and aggregation state of metal nanostructures. Two-dimensional arrays of plasmonic metal nanoparticles are good candidates for various devices from a practical viewpoint. Therefore, we developed the two-dimensional arrays of larger plasmonic metal nanoparticles, which was expected to exhibit larger plasmonic effects, with wide area by employing bottom up methods. Furthermore, we investigated their plasmonic properties for sensing and photoelectrochemical applications. Comparing the arrays consisting of gold nanoparticles with the diameter of 15 and 50 nm, we found that the latter array exhibited larger enhancement effects from surface enhanced Raman scattering measurements..
