Title: Optical properties of gold nanoparticles produced by the assembly of size-selected clusters : Covering the full visible wavelength range in the smallest particle size regime.

Abstract

The tunability of the optical properties of small gold nanoparticles assembled from size-selected Au{sub 6-10} clusters on the surface of indium-tin-oxide glass support was studied as a function of gold particle size and shape using UV-VIS and dark-field microscopy techniques. The size and shape of gold nanoparticles was determined by employing synchrotron X-ray scattering. The obtained spectra show that a 350 nm wavelength range is accessible by proper tuning the size and shape of the studied nanoparticles with 1-2.5 nm main size and asymmetric vs symmetric form.
