The unprecedented ability to form complex nanostructures of diverse materials may enable new modes of functionality for future devices, including nanoscale optical interconnects and optical near-field probes. In this talk I discuss recent work in my group exploring theoretically optical propagation on chains of noncontacting noble-metal nanoparticles. We outline the exactly solvable model, and then focus on the severe intrinsic attenuation in these structures associated with radiative loss, disorder, and dephasing.
