Gold Nanoparticle Properties Background. Gold nanoparticles (colloidial gold) have been extensively used for applications both in biology (e.g. bio-imaging) and technology (e.g. photonics) due their unique optical properties. These properties are conferred by the interaction of light with electrons on the gold nanoparticle surface.

Properties. 1. Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) When gold nanoparticles are exposed to a specific wavelength of light, the oscillating electromagnetic field of the light induces a collective coherent oscillation of the free electrons, which causes a charge separation with respect to the ionic lattice, forming a dipole oscillation along the direction of the electric field of the light.
