This work reports on theoretical studies of optical properties of Au nanorods with various aspect ratios, embedded in a nanoporous anodic alumina matrix. If the template is fabricated using particular conditions, nanostructures with diameters in the 15-25 nm range can be synthesized. These nanoparticles have potential applications in optical filters and sensors.
