The optical properties of gold in the visible are dominated by the response of the free conduction electrons to light. In gold nanostructures, the surface charge density adopts a configuration that is constrained by the shape of the nanoparticles. As a result, the scattering of light by gold nanoparticles exhibits a resonant response characterised by a strong scattering and absorption in a narrow range of frequencies. The spectral range of this localised surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) can be tuned by varying the size and shape of the gold nanoparticle – the nanoparticles act as nanoscale antennas for the visible light.
