Abstract: In the current study the synthesis of hollow gold nanoshells (HAuNS) is demonstrated through the use of a galvanic replacement reaction. HAuNS of select diameter and shell thickness were synthesized and tunability of the extinction coefficient was demonstrated through control of the materials' core-shell ratio.
