Modern-day wonders of the world: Nanostructured films of plasmonic pyramid arrays (see picture) were prepared by the simple stamping of preformed homogeneous nanocolloids. These materials show very high efficiency as optical enhancers and can be exploited for the design of quantitative, cheap, portable, and ultrasensitive optical sensors with excellent reversibility.
