24 March 2014 Surface plasmon influence on two-photon luminescence from single gold nanorods
Author Affiliations +
Single nanoparticle imaging is a powerful method to characterize nanoobjects and gain better understanding of their structural and optical properties. In our research we focus on plasmonic nanoparticles and particularly on anisotropic gold nanorods, which present interesting, polarization-dependent optical properties strictly correlated with their surface plasmon resonances. Here we discuss our results on two-photon excited luminescence imaging of a single gold nanorod. We analyze the dependence of the two-photon luminescence of a nanorod on the excitation wavelength, incident laser power and polarization, and contrast them with the data available in the literature.
