Caption: Rice University researchers determined the amount of time it takes electrons generated by plasmons in a gold nanorod to transfer to a sheet of graphene through spectroscopic analysis of hundreds of particles. The research will help scientists strategize on ways to gather and store electrons from plasmonic particles.
