Employing Surface Plasmon Resonances to Boost Multiple Exciton Generation in Lead-Based Quantum Dots

We are exploring the synthesis and development of monolayer Ag nanoparticle films for use in metal enhanced absorption and fluorescence applications. Depending on their morphology, Ag nanoparticles can scatter some parts of the optical spectrum significantly more than they absorb. In these studies we are exploring synthetic methods to control their scattering properties and chemically attach them to glass substrates.
