Ideas for a project on plasmonics

In summary, plasmonics is a branch of science that studies the interaction between light and metal nanoparticles. It has potential applications in sensing, imaging, and data storage. Plasmonics can be incorporated into a project by designing and fabricating metal nanoparticles to manipulate light in a desired way. Some current challenges in the field include increasing the efficiency of plasmonic devices and overcoming limitations in fabrication techniques. There are also ethical considerations to be taken into account when working with plasmonics, such as responsible use of resources and proper disposal of materials.

So I'm a third year EE student and we have this thing called a "group project", where we work part times in groups of 2-3 students on a topic. Anyways I have been reading up a bit on plasmonics and I find it very interesting, so I was wondering if anyone might have an idea of some sort of project one could do on the topic? I'm guessing it would have to be mainly based on MATLAB simulation, but if anyone has any ideas, that would be greatly appreciated..
