An electrochemical method is developed to quantitatively modify and spectroscopically monitor the size and shape of Ag nanotriangles fabricated by nanosphere lithography (NSL) on an indium tin oxide (ITO) electrode surface. AFM and SEM results demonstrate that the preferential order of electrochemical oxidation for a nanotriangle is, surprisingly, bottom edges first, then triangular tips, then out-of-plane height.
