Abstract

Monocrystalline metallic nanoparticles are preferable for plasmonic applications, but grow preferably in polyhedral shapes which deviate from the pervasive spherical shape. Our simulations show that dimers of octahedral Au nanoparticles have higher field enhancement in the gap compared to dimers of spherical Au nanoparticles.
