Since the incorporation of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) in the Lycurgus cup in the 4th century AD allowing a dichroism in reflected and transmitted light, headways paved the path for the synthesis of AuNPs. The optical (surface plasmon resonance) and other properties become size-dependant for small AuNPs (quantum size effect) and can be modulated by controlled synthesis conditions. It is this size...
