Abstract

A differential interference contrast microscopy technique that employs a photonic crystal fiber as a white-light source is used to measure both the real and the imaginary part of the complex dielectric constant of single 10 and 15nm gold nanoparticles over a wavelength range of 480to610nm. Noticeable deviations from bulk gold measurements are observed at short wavelengths and for individual particles even after taking into account finite-size surface damping effects.
