In this seminar series we want to understand plasmonic nanostructures and their interaction with carbon-based nanosystems (graphene and carbon nanotubes). We base the seminar on two papers that were recently published in the field:
M. Gläske and A. Setaro, Nanoplasmonic colloidal suspensions for the enhancement of the luminescent emission from single-walled carbon nanotubes, Nano Research 6, 593 (2013).
S. Heeg et al., Polarized Plasmonic Enhancement by Au Nanostructures Probed through Raman Scattering of Suspended Graphene, Nano Lett. 13, 301 (2013).
The students will read both papers and collect questions and ideas on the research presented. We will develop the topics for the seminar series based on this discussion.
