Abstract. A unique feature of nanoparticles made from highly conductive materials (plasmonic nanoparticles) is that their localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) wavelength position can be tuned by changing the shape, size, composition and environment in accordance with the purpose of the application. In this paper, the main mechanisms of LSPR tuning that are available at the present time are reviewed. In particular, a widely used method for tuning the LSPR wavelength position is based on selecting the type of a plasmonic nanoparticle material such as gold, silver, copper, aluminum and gold-silver alloy. The examples of changing the resonance absorption position by using nanoparticles with different shapes and dimensions have been аlso demonstrated. Furthermore, works with less used LSPR tuning methods, such as controlled regulation of the distance between nanoparticles in one and two dimensions have been considered. The number of works is given, where the LSPR wavelength position can be also controlled by changing the environment in the vicinity of plasmonic nanoparticle: the substrate thickness, the thickness and dielectric parameters of the layer on the surface of the nanoparticle. Examples of active influence on the change in the wave position of LSPR by applying an electric potential and regulating plasma modes have been also discussed.

Keywords:localized surface plasmon resonance, gold nanostructures, nanochip, LSPR tuning.
