Abstract

Ultrathin and flexible silica nanosheets, synthesized with gold nanorod dimers embedded uniformly throughout, can be dispersed in solution and deposited onto arbitrary surfaces. These novel materials conform and maintain the as-synthesized density of dimers, allowing them to be used reliably in labeling and detection applications.
