Features of the surface plasmon from macroscopic materials emerge in molecular systems, but differentiating collective excitations from single-particle excitations in molecular systems remains elusive. The rich interactions between single-particle electron-hole and collective electron excitations produce phenomena related to the chemical physics aspects within the atomic array. We study the plasmonic properties of atomic arrays of noble (Au, Ag, and Cu) and transition metal (Pd, Pt) homonuclear chains using time-dependent density-functional theory and their Kohn--Sham transition contributions. The response to the electromagnetic radiation is related to both the geometry-dependent confinement of sp-valence electrons, and the energy position of d-electrons in the different atomic species and the hybridization between d and sp electrons. It is possible to tune the position of the plasmon resonance, split it into several peaks, and eventually achieve broadband absorption of radiation. Arrays of mixed noble and transition metal chains may have strongly attenuated plasmonic behavior. The collective nature of the excitations is ascertained using their Kohn--Sham transition contributions. To manipulate the plasmonic response and achieve the desired properties for broad applications, it is vital to understand the origins of these phenomena in atomic chains and their arrays.

A biosensing technique in which biomolecules capable of binding to specific analytes or ligands are first immobilized on one side of a metallic film. Light is then focused on the opposite side of the film to excite the surface plasmons, that is, the oscillations of free electrons propagating along the film's surface. The refractive index of light reflecting off this surface is measured. When the immobilized biomolecules are bound by their ligands, an alteration in surface plasmons on the opposite side of the film is created which is directly proportional to the change in bound, or adsorbed, mass. Binding is measured by changes in the refractive index. The technique is used to study biomolecular interactions, such as antigen-antibody binding.
Endogenous superantigens responsible for inducing strong proliferative responses in T-cells in mixed lymphocyte reactions (see LYMPHOCYTE CULTURE TEST, MIXED). They are encoded by mouse mammary tumor viruses that have integrated into the germ line as DNA proviruses (MINOR LYMPHOCYTE STIMULATORY LOCI).
