(b) Silver nanoparticle solution. However, the absorbances of Ag nanosphere/PVP and Ag nanosphere/PVP/Au film are very weak. In addition, the absorbance resonance peak of silver nanospheres has obviously blueshifted. Meanwhile, the absorption peak at 560 nm of ultrathin gold film disappeared in the Ag nanosphere/PVP/Au film, which means that the surface plasma resonance (SPR) peak of Ag nanosphere is not consistent with that of the Au nanofilm. Compared to Ag nanosphere,
the longer Ag nanowire has sharper plasmon resonance that leads to click here red-shifted selleck plasmon resonance and ensures a better overlap between plasmon resonance and absorption band of Au nanofilm. So there is no resonance-enhanced absorption between the Ag nanosphere and Au nanofilm. It is an important point to keep in mind that the SPR wavelength and the resonance intensity is greatly influenced by the kind of metal, particle size and shape, aggregation condition
of particles, and so on. The fluorescence optical properties of nanoparticle-polymer composite film on the surface of the Au nanofilm/glass The effects of the existence of Ag nanoparticles and Au nanofilm on the fluorescence from the R6G/PVP films are further investigated, as shown in Figure MI-503 ic50 4. There is no fluorescence from the R6G/Ag nanowire/PVP, R6G/Ag nanosphere/PVP, R6G/Ag nanosphere/PVP/Au film, Ag nanosphere/PVP, and Ag nanowire/PVP films, according to in Figure 4. Thus, the fluorescence peaks of 563 nm shown in Figure 4 are attributed to electric transition of π-π* of R6G doped in the PVP films. The enhanced fluorescence is observed in the R6G/Ag nanowire/PVP/Au film and R6G/PVP/Au film, and the enhanced factor (I c/I b) is about 7.7 and 2.3, respectively. The I c is the fluorescence
absorption peaks of R6G/Ag nanowire/PVP/Au film and R6G/PVP/Au film at 560 nm nearby, respectively. The I b is the fluorescence absorption peak of R6G/PVP at 560 nm nearby.

The fluorescence quenching in the metal colloid film has been observed in the R6G/Ag nanowire/PVP, R6G/Ag nanosphere/PVP, R6G/Ag nanosphere/PVP/Au film, according to Figure 4. The SPR resonance absorption peak at 560 nm of Au nanoparticle is consistent with the R6G absorption peak, therefore, the enhanced fluorescence is observed in the R6G/PVP/Au film. According to the optical absorption spectrum of Ag nanowire/PVP/Au film in Figure 3, there is strong optical absorption at 563 nm nearby. Therefore, the obviously enhanced fluorescence is observed in the R6G/Ag nanowire/PVP/Au film. These phenomena are ascribed to surface-enhanced fluorescence, resulting from surface plasmon resonance of Ag nanowire and Au nanoparticle.
