Plasmonics publishes peer-reviewed articles that both advance and report on the knowledge and practice of the interactions of free-metal electrons, Plasmons.

Coverage includes theory, physics, and applications of surface plasmons in metals, and rapidly emerging areas of nanotechnology, biophotonics, sensing, biochemistry and medicine. The journal covers the theory, synthesis and optical properties of noble metal nanostructures, patterned surfaces, continuous or grated surfaces and devices. Applications include surface-enhanced spectroscopic properties, such as Raman scattering or fluorescence, as well developments in techniques such as surface plasmon resonance and near-field scanning optical microscopy.

Papers describe new plasmonic based devices, new synthetic procedures for the preparation of nanostructures and their optical properties, as well their applications in analytical sensing.

The journal presents reviews, rapid communications, letters to the editors, and technical and design notes.

Plasmonics is edited by Professor Chris D. Geddes, Director of the Institute of Fluorescence at the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, Maryland, USA

  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
