Abstract

A single silica-shell isolated Au-Ag alloy nanoparticle is used for investigating a metal-enhanced fluorescence effect. Well-dispersed alloy nanoparticles are prepared by the facile chemical method, and the property of local surface plasmon resonance is controlled by adjusting the metal component of the alloy and shell thickness. The distance dependence of fluorescence enhancement for a single Au-Ag alloy nanoparticle is studied systematically with different silica shell thickness ranging from 2 to 35 nm. The isolation shell not only adjusts the distance between metal surface and fluorophore emitters but also improves the chemical stability of the metal particle.
