Abstract

The first smart plasmonic absorber based on metal-polymer bionanocomposites performing via conformational changes of the biological functional agent, i.e., a protein, is introduced. Such a progress is done through bridging the gaps between nanofluid filtration, plasmonics, and bioswitching. Initially, a biofunctionalized nanofibrous membrane is developed that could filter out metal nanoparticles (
