Silver Plates

Tuned Wavelengths

Silver nanoplates are surface plasmon resonant (SPR) platelet-shaped nanoparticles that have extremely large absorbing and scattering cross-sections across the visible and near-IR regions of the spectrum. By precisely controlling the plate diameter and thickness, the nanoplate's optical resonance can be tuned to peak at specific wavelengths (550 nm-1000 nm). Learn more

Gold Nanoshells

Engineered for the Infrared

Gold nanoshells are nanoscale silica cores that are surrounded by an ultra-thin gold shell. The gold nanoshells can be tuned to strongly absorb or scatter light at any wavelength in the visible and near-IR regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Learn more

Redispersible Powders

Your Choice of Solvent

Our dried silver nanopowders are formulated with polymer or alkanethiol surface coatings which allow the nanoparticles to easily be redispersed as unagglomerated dispersions in a variety of solvents. We have verified the redispersion with transmission electron microscopy (TEM), UV-visible spectroscopy and dynamic light scattering.
