The work presented here describes investigations into the interaction of resonant molecules with metallic nanoparticles by localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) spectroscopy. The contents of this thesis include the study of the coupling mechanism between molecular resonance and plasmon resonance from experimental and theoretical perspectives and applications of this mechanism to biological sensing. From these studies, LSPR spectroscopy is shown to be a powerful tool to study the electronic structures of resonant molecules adsorbed on nanostructured metallic surfaces.(14) Kelly, K.
