Isha Saini; Annu Sharma; Naveneet Chandak; Sanjeev Aggarwal; Pawan K. Sharma

Volume 3, Issue 8 , October 2018, , Pages 508-511

  Silver (Ag) nanoparticles play a significant role in nanomaterials science and technology due to many peculiarities. One of the main characteristic of Ag nanoparticles is the occurrence of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) due to the collective oscillation of free electrons in visible region. Due to this ...  Read More
