“This is a really complete book that covers topics ranging from the basics of light–matter interaction through practical and theoretical methods to understand and characterize the optical response of nanoparticles and molecules, as well as their interaction and related surface enhancement effects. The theoretical description is complemented by experimental examples and applications. The book will be very useful to researchers entering the field of molecular plasmonics, particularly those who are less familiar with the basic concepts, which are usually skipped in more specialized books or reviews.”

“This is a well-conceived and well-organized book in the broad and highly active area of molecular plasmonics. It contains leading specialists’ contributions on theory and simulation, experimental techniques, and fabrication. Each chapter is structured in order that it can serve both as an introduction for a non-specialist reader and as a review reference for an active researcher in the field. The content achieves very good balance between tutorial and research aspects—what can make the book an authoritative reference in the field for several years.”
Prof. Lucio C. Andreani - University of Pavia, Italy
Molecular plasmonics is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary science that aims at investigating the coupling, at the nanometer scale, between emitting molecules and metallic nanostructures. This metal–molecule electromagnetic interaction involves the excitation of localized and/or delocalized surface plasmons and is of great interest for a variety of research disciplines such as sensing, optoelectronics, medical diagnosis, optical communications, nanoscience, and energy.
This handbook presents a comprehensive overview on the physics of the plasmon–emitter interaction, ranging from electromagnetism to quantum mechanics, from metal-enhanced fluorescence to surface-enhanced Raman scattering, and from optical microscopy to the synthesis of metal nanoparticles, filling the gap in the literature of this emerging field. It is useful for graduate students as well as researchers from various fields who want to enter the field of molecular plasmonics. The text allows experimentalists to have a solid theoretical reference at a different level of accuracy and theoreticians to find new stimuli for novel computational methods and emerging applications.
