Abstract: Stannum nanocaps were prepared by evaporating Sn on self-assembled monolayer arrays of SiO2 nanoparticles. Surface morphologies, structure, and optical properties of composite nanoparticles were characterized and investigated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometer. The results show that the composite nanoparticles are cap-shaped and surface plasmonic resonance absorption peaks move to the near-infrared region as the SiO2 diameter increases and Sn cap thickness increases.

Key words: Stannum nanocaps, Composite nanoparticles, Surface plasmonic resonance
