The interaction between light and silver nanoparticles via the excitation of plasmon resonances which are the collective oscillation of the free electron density represents the most efficient interaction between light and matter. This alone makes plasmonic silver nanoparticles of great interest for both fundamental studies as well as practical applications. In this thesis, silver nanoparticles of various shapes and sizes and organized clusters were synthesized and investigated for their optical properties.
