This effect suppresses absorption and increases radiation abilities of larger particles within plasmon mechanism. This is manifested in the corresponding absorption and scatering efficiencies. This creates a simple, yet robust, platform which can be used to investigate the properties of nanoparticles, for sensing, spectroscopy, and optical switching applications. Plasmon resonance related peak, as well as broadening of the plasmon resonance was observed. The efficiency of the photoelectric conversion of gold nanoparticle layers is increased as the intensity of surface plasmon resonance increases.
