In the recent decades, molecular plasmonics, a novel branch in the field of plasmonics, has garnered a great deal of scientific interest due to unique possibilities provided for the investigation of molecular properties at the nanoscale. Used in a variety of scientific applications, various approaches of molecular plasmonics are now widely regarded as a nondestructive, real-time, precise, and effective way to investigate the molecular world.
This book compiles and details the wide-ranging research in different approaches to the field of molecular plasmonics from international interdisciplinary teams of researchers who are currently establishing these novel optoelectronic techniques through the development of basic theoretical methods and experimental protocols. Edited by V. Chegel and A. Lopatynskyi, two well-known researchers in plasmonics, this book will appeal to anyone involved in nanotechnology, sensing, macromolecular science, electrochemistry, or metamaterial research.
