Optical Properties of One-Dimensional Metal Nanostructures

  • Encai Hao (a1), Shengli Zou (a1) and George C. Schatz (a1)


We present a theoretical study of the optical properties of one-dimensional (1-D) metal nanostructures including nanorods and nanotubes. Although the optical properties of gold nanotubes are similar to that of gold nanorods, both the longitudinal and transverse plasmon resonances of gold nanotubes show much larger red-shifting and narrower. The E-field calculations indicate that the 1-D gold nanostructures, particularly gold nanotubes have great potential for applications to SERS.
