Abstract

original image

Moderne Weltwunder: Nanostrukturierte Filme aus plasmonischen Pyramiden-Arrays (siehe Bild) wurden durch einfaches Aufstempeln von vorgefertigten homogenen Nanokolloiden erzeugt. Die Materialien wirken als effiziente optische Verstärker und können für die Konstruktion quantitativer, billiger, tragbarer, ultraempfindlicher optischer Sensoren mit exzellenter Reversibilität genutzt werden.
