Abstract Short gold nanorods of average lengths ranging between 20 and 100 nm (with corresponding aspect ratios of 2 and 4) were synthesized in excellent yield (approximately 97\%). These nanorods were characterized by dark-field microscopy, UV-visible spectrophotometry, and transmission electron microscopy. Temporal evolution of rod shape had also been followed by UV-visible spectrophotometry and transmission electron microscopy and indicates that the nanorods briefly increase in length, then increase slightly in width, as they grow. The effect of the synthetic parameters on the rod dimension and yield was explored to find out suitable conditions to produce short nanorods; short nanorods have both plasmon bands in the visible region of the spectrum, which is a valuable property for sensor applications.
