    Highlights - Silver Nanoparticles by Nobuhiko IKI
    New "Highlights" section presents a topical review article for the cutting edge topic in the analytical science field. The review is a contribution from the Editorial Board member of Analytical Sciences.
    “ When metal nanoparticles interact with an oscillating electromagnetic field of light, this results in a collective coherent oscillation of the metal conduction electrons with respect to the nanoparticle positive lattice. This process is termed as “localized surface plasmon resonance” (LSPR) under resonance conditions. ”…
