When plasmonic nanoparticles are incorporated into nanostructures and they are exposed to external optical fields, plasmonic coupling causes electric near-field enhancement which is significantly larger than that of isolated nanoparticles. We report on the plasmonic coupling in arrays of gold nanospheres (20 +/- 3 and 50 +/- 4 nm) prepared by colloidal chemistry and self-organization. This yields field enhancement in arrays with areas of several mm(2) and provides an alternative approach to lithographic methods for preparation of nanostructures for plasmonic applications. Gold nanospheres are surface-functionalized by organic ligands, which define the interparticle distance in the array upon self-organization of the nanoparticles. The experiments are accompanied by finite-difference time-domain simulations, which quantify the dependence of the field enhancement on the interparticle distance.
