Plasmonic Polymer

Caption: How far a wavelength of light can be transmitted along a gold nanoparticle chain to where it dies down (the "extinction" point) depends on the configuration of the repeat units the nanoparticles themselves according to Rice University researchers. Their study was intended to draw parallels between nanoparticle arrays and polymers that also depend on chemical repeat units for their characteristics.
