In this work, we characterize the near-field response of individual gold nanotriangles over a broad, visible-to-infrared, spectral region (200-1500 meV) using high-resolution electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) performed inside of a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM). We begin by experimentally imaging the spatial and spectral extent of each nanotriangle's plasmonic Fabry-Perot modes and measuring the evolution of their resonance energies with increasing edge length; thereby providing detailed information on infrared plasmon dephasing times and dispersion relations. Numerical electromagnetic simulations of the electron probe are used to interpret these experimental results and to compare the near-field electromagnetic enhancement factors of gold nanotriangles and nanorods of equal resonant energy. Taken together, this combined experimental and theoretical study provides unique insights relevant to designing noble metal plasmonic nanoparticle systems for solar energy harvesting and sensing applications in the near-and mid-infrared.
