Abstract:
Conversion of near infrared radiation into heat, controlled at the nanoscale, is achieved and detected by exploiting the localized plasmonic resonance (LPR) of gold nanorods (GNRs) trapped in thermosensitive self-organized materials such as Liquid Crystals (LCs). The localized heating from the nanosources induces a modification in the alignment of the surrounding medium; this induces a variation of the LCs properties and modifies the spectral position of the LPR of GNRs
