Characterisation of gold nanoparticles on substrate

McLeod, Angus R. (2015) Characterisation of gold nanoparticles on substrate. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis investigated the interaction between light and gold nanoparticles, for gold nanoparticles sitting on a variety of surfaces. The work was both experimental and theoretical in nature. Using a custom designed experimental set-up we were able to probe the interaction of light with individual nanoparticles. We were also able to predict the interaction of light with gold nanoparticles sitting on graphene substrates. The work presented lays the groundwork for more extensive investigation of surfaces enhanced by the addition of gold nanoparticles.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
