Abstract

Time-dependent and near-field nanoparticle concentrations are determined by correlating the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) reflectance intensities with the effective refractive index (ERI) of the nanofluid under evaporation. A critical angle measurement for total internal reflection identifies the ERI of the nanofluid at different nanoparticle concentrations. The corresponding SPR reflectance intensities correlate the nanofluidic ERI with the nanoparticle concentrations. Example applications for evaporating nanofluidic droplets containing 47 ‚ÄČ nm Al 2 O 3 particles demonstrate the feasibility of this new imaging tool for measuring time-resolved and full-field nanoparticle concentration profiles.
