The resonant interaction of light with metal nanoparticles can result in extraordinary optical effects in both the near and far fields. Plasmonics, the study of this interaction, has the potential to enhance performance in a wide range of applications, including sensing, photovoltaics, photocatalysis, biomedical imaging, diagnostics, and treatment. However, the mechanisms of plasmonic enhancement often remain poorly understood, limiting the design and effectiveness of plasmonics for advanced applications. This dissertation focuses on evaluating the mechanisms of plasmonic enhancement and distinguishing between near and far field effects using simulations and experimental results.
