The electric field intensity near a silver nanoparticle is enhanced by virtue of surface plasmons. When a molecule experiences such a high electric field, it gives out an intense Raman spectrum, and this effect has been used for spectroscopic and analytical purposes....
Scarcity of clean water and poor access to sanitation are identified as global challenges, which are expected to grow worse in the near future. Sea water desalination is one of the currently discussed technologies that could solve this problem. One way of doing this...
