 Project objective

Guiding molecules/nanomaterials to the right place in plasmonic nanoantennas is a key problem to be solved in order to benefit from the high electromagnetic field localization offered by these materials. Accessing these nanoscale-regions remains a significant challenge in plasmonics and is the main goal of this project. The novel approach introduced here is based on the field-enhancement properties of the nanoantennas, thus spatially selective to the hot-spots. This easy, fast and cheap strategy can allow selective and large-scale positioning of any kind of molecules and/or nanomaterials in a variety of plasmonic-nanoantenna hot-spots, independently of their shape and resonance position. This strategy can solve the big challenge of hot-spot modification in plasmonic nanoantennas thus opening new doors to many real applications ranging from biosensing to energy conversion.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "HOTSPOT" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
