Gold (Au) and Silver (Ag) Nanoparticles (NP) have received significant attention due to their unique optical and electrical properties compared to their bulk forms. Controlling and manipulating optical and electrical properties affected by size, shape, and composition dependency are investigated by UV-Vis Spectroscopy. When they are deposited on surfaces electrical charging/discharging properties of these NPs are measured by X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS). Investigation of optical and electrical properties of these particles especially by these tools is an important aspect for optical and electrical applications of Au and Ag Nanoparticles. This book aims to enlighten charging properties of these particles for such applications.
