Abstract
A differential interference contrast microscopy technique that employs a photonic crystal fiber as a white-light source is used to measure both the real and the imaginary part of the complex dielectric constant of single 10 and 15 nm gold nanoparticles over a wavelength range of 480 to 610 run. Noticeable deviations from bulk gold measurements are observed at short wavelengths and for individual particles even after taking into account finite-size surface damping effects.
