In this work, surface plasmon resonance (SPR) spectroscopy has been employed as a probe for studying modifications in nanostructured systems based on Au. Those modifications include: a) structural and morphological changes induced by annealing and b) electronic modifications upon X-ray irradiation. The use of SPR spectroscopy to follow the evolution of modifications in nanostructures (especially, in situ and in real time) has been scarcely explored and its study results interesting and relevant for the plasmonic technology. For that, different experiments have been planned and performed.
