Metallic particles and surfaces display diverse and complex opto-electrical properties. These properties, such as intense colors of noble metal colloids, strongly depend on metal and colloid size, and have been a subject of studies for centuries. Thin metal surfaces display strong absorption of light impinging under a very well defined angle that strongly depends on physicochemical properties of dielectrics on both sides of the metal film. For the last 20 years surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technology has been widely utilized in biochemical and biophysical analyses and is now extensively used for studying bioaffinity reactions on surfaces.
