We will identify their plasmon resonances and correlate them with their quantized electronic structure. The goal is to prove that nanowires of atomic sizes behave as optical antennas due to the quantization of their plasmon structure.
Part of the technical challenge lies in making a large number of quantum dots all of the same size, says Evelyn Hu, director of the Center for Quantized Electronic Structures at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
