Noble metal nanoparticles interacting with electromagnetic waves exhibit the effect of localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) based on the collective oscillation of their conduction electrons. Local refractive index changes by a (bio) molecular layer surrounding the nanoparticle are important for a variety of research areas like optics and life sciences. In this work we demonstrate the potential of two applications in the field of molecular plasmonics, single nanoparticle sensors and nanoantennas, situated between plasmonics effects and the molecular world.
