In Brief: Bifunctional plasmonic / magnetic nanoparticles

Friday, August 19, 2011 - 07:31 in Physics & Chemistry

An amorphous-seed mediated strategy has been developed in the Center for Nanoscale Materials Nanophotonics Group at the Argonne National Laboratory for creating bifunctional nanoparticles composed of silver and iron oxide nanodomains. These hybrid particles exhibit unique optical properties due to surface plasmon resonance from the silver and superparamagnetic responses from the iron oxide.
