dc.description.abstract The optical response from metal nanoparticles and nanostructures is dominated by surface plasmon generation and is critically dependent on the local structure and geometry. Electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS0, combined with recent developments in spectrum imaging and data processing, has been used obserne the energy and distribution of surface plasmons excited by fast electrons. The energy of the plasmon responses is consistent with the optical response and with calculations. For gold and silver rods and ellipsoids, longitudinal, transverse and distinct cluster modes were readily identified and mapped. The spatial resolution of the presneted maps is one order of magnitude better than that achievable with scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM)-based techniques. en_US
