Title: Position- and orientation-controlled polarized light interaction of individual indium tin oxide nanorods

We have systematically investigated the position, orientation, and polarization angle dependence of scattered light from well-characterized, indium tin oxide nanorods (ITO NRs) upon illumination with monochromatic light. Scattering signals from individual ITO NRs of horizontal and vertical configurations are probed quantitatively by examining signal response with respect to the analyzer angle and position along the length of the NR. Our efforts can be highly beneficial in providing fundamental understanding for the light interaction behavior of ITO NRs. Our results can provide valuable bases for comprehending optical emission from individual NRs, with their ever-growing applications in optoelectronics, photonics, and biosensing.
