“Background The interest in developing superior nanomaterials has seen tremendous progress in terms of nanofabrication, nanopatterning, and nano-self-assembly [1–3]. These progresses generated a wealth family of novel, engineered structures with desirable shape and electronic and optical properties [4–6]. These not only give researchers the foundation for basic physics phenomena that are not seen in bulk materials but also provided a wide range of application opportunities. A good example is the plasmonic nanostructures; particularly, Au and Ag nanoparticles

are the most very studied nanomaterials [7–9]. The mature solution-based synthesis techniques for Au and Ag nanostructures have enabled size, shape, and inter-particle spacing controllable solutions or arrays. They have demonstrated strong absorption and scattering resonance in a wide range of wavelength, which is now actively applied in functional devices and systems such as surface plasmon-enhanced Raman spectroscopy [10], solar cells [11, 12], as well as lasers [13, 14]. The advantages of nanomaterials are not limited to single component but should be extended to the possibilities to combine different nanocomponents into hybrid/composite structures [15, 16]. Hybrid materials feature merits from two or more components and potentially synergistic properties caused by interactions between them. Interactions can be very strong as both the building blocks and separation between them have nanoscale dimensions [17, 18]. For instance, it is well studied that nanoscale emitters benefit from metal nanoparticle or nanofilm surroundings [13, 19, 20].
