The objectives of the research program were centered around the common them of understanding plasmon-mediated andor controlled energy transfer at the nanoscale. We examined the hypothesis that molecular-based models can be implemented to understand the mechanisms of how plasmonic nanoparticle networks transfer electromagnetic energy, and to determine what nanoparticle structures are most efficient for these applications. The research proceeded through five inter-related themes 1 superresolution nanostructure imaging using spatial localization of plasmon-mediated nonlinear optical NLO signals 2 selective-amplification of light polarization states using asymmetric and chiral nanostructures 3 quantification of plasmon-mode specific electronic coherence times 4 development of ultrafast two dimensional electronic spectroscopy for measuring strong inter-particle plasmon coupling and 5 computational modeling of plasmon dynamics.
