Title: Differential interference contrast microscopy imaging of micrometer-long plasmonic nanowires

Here, we report polarization- and wavelength-sensitive differential interference contrast (DIC) images and intensities of 2 μm-long gold nanowires. Moreover, the feasibility and usefulness of the gold nanowires as optical sensors and probes in biological systems are demonstrated through combining with a DIC microscope.
