Abstract

original image

Self-assembly of plasmonic nanoparticles into controlled and spatially organized macrofeatures could be applicable to diverse fields such as metamaterial properties, environmental monitoring, and biomedicine. In their Communication on page 6459 ff., A. Fery, A. R. de Lera, L. F. Marsal, R. A. Alvarez-Puebla, et al. create large-area patterns of micropyramids composed of gold nanoparticles as building blocks. These pyramids provide an ultraintense electric field at their surface upon illumination with light.
