ABSTRACT
Localized surface plasmon resonances (LSPR) have attracted much interest since it provides a mechanism for enhancing and controlling many important processes, such as energy transfer, light-harvesting and hot electron generations. The tunability of plasmon resonances has been researched for decades, but only passive tuning can be achieved for metallic nanoparticles through changes of size, shape, composition, or by using different dielectric medium. Active tunability of plasmon resonance over a large spectral region is of significant interest in device applications. In this talk, I will introduce our recent works on active and dynamic tuning of the plasmon resonance, including mechanical stretching of nanoparticle arrays on elastomeric substrates, dynamic switching between the capacitive and conductive regimes through electrochemical oxidation-reduction process,  doped nanocrystals whose free carrier densities can be changed dramatically through doping. Utilizing these approaches, one can design certain nanostructures to achieve unique optical properties. In this talk, I will also talk about our recent progress on transparency window effect with "written-in" characteristic. At last, I will show our understandings on dynamic decay process of plasmon and the physical origin of plasmon.
