Visible surface plasmon modes in single Bi2Te3 nanoplate

Searching for new plasmonic building blocks which offer tunability and design flexibility beyond noble metals is crucial for advancing the field of plasmonics. Herein, we report that solution-synthesized hexagonal Bi2Te3 nanoplates, in the absence of grating configurations, can exhibit multiple plasmon modes covering the entire visible range, as observed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM)-based electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) and cathodoluminescence (CL) spectroscopy.
