Localized Surface Plasmons Shed Light on Nanoscale Metal Hydrides



Nanometer-sized hydrides are attractive for hydrogen storage. Nanofabricated model systems can be studied by a novel localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) based direct sensing approach and by quartz crystal microbalance. The role of nanoparticle size, shape and microstructure on the storage thermodynamics can be scrutinized.
