Although silver nanowires as plasmonic components have been investigated extensively in both theoretical and experimental studies, a systematic study is still lacking. In this work, a review is given to explain some basic features of experimentally prepared nanowires and their optical properties in different situations, such as waveguides, resonators, and antennas. The review also lists several possible applications of nanowires for enhanced light‐emitting, photonic device fabrication, sensors, lasers, and nonlinear optics. Combined with the merits of both nanowires and surface plasmon polaritons, silver nanowires are certain to show their potential in photonics in the near future.
