The field of plasmonics has become one of the most interesting and active research areas in nanotechnology, enabling numerous fundamental studies and applications. The ability to tailor the size, shape, and environment of metal nanostructures is the key component for controlling the plasmonic properties of individual or aggregated nanostructures. In this feature article, a category of chemically nanofabricated, unique free-standing one-dimensional (1D) plasmonic nanostructures has been summarized. The dispersible plasmonic nanostructures were obtained in high yield with control over gap size and feature size. This ability was exploited to tune the emerging plasmonic properties overcoming the difficulties of other methods to do so, leading to applications in analytical detection, biological sensing, and nanoelectronics.
