This work is dedicated to the nanofabrication, characterization, and application of complex plasmonic nanostructures with engineered optical properties. Large-area and homogeneous asymmetric plasmonic crystals were fabricated combining thermal nanoimprint lithography (top-down) with tilted thermal evaporation (bottom-up) while the merger of nanoimprint lithography and nanoparticle self-assembly have led to the fabrication of long-range homogeneous nanoparticles supercrystals. Both systems have been characterized in order to engineer their optical response and finally tested for surface-enhanced fluoresce and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy.
