blueshift

(bloo -shift) An overall shift of the spectral lines in a spectrum toward shorter wavelengths as a result of the Doppler effect. It is observed in the spectra of celestial objects approaching the Earth. See redshift.

As a general rule, higher AR corresponds to resonances at higher wavelengths, while approaching to minimum AR, namely, 1, corresponds to blueshift of the spectra around 530 nm, the well-known dipolar resonance of spherical nanoparticles, which are nicely reproduced for the truncated cuboctahedron particle.
Furthermore, the emission spectra of the composites are also blueshifted, similar to the blueshift of the excitation spectra, which suggests that the TCA matrix has an impact on the excitation and emission processes of the additive Dy[(SSA).sub.3]Phen complex in the TCA composites.
Consequently, the peak position is blueshifted with decreasing in the metal particle size, while aggregation causes a remarkable intensity increase in the red/infrared region of the spectrum [26].
Compared to a local approach, a blueshift in the energy of the plasmons is obtained.
Due to the Doppler effect, this radial velocity change induces a shift of the star's spectrum towards longer wavelengths as it moves away (called a redshift) and a blueshift (towards shorter wavelengths) as it approaches.
