Abstract

In this work the performance of Au/Ag nanoislands was investigated for Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) and Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) applications. The nanoislands were generated by thermally annealing thin layers of silver and gold (having thickness in the 5-15 nm range), which were previously sputtered onto glass surfaces. Both pure (silver and gold nanoparticles – AuNP and AgNP) and composite metallic systems (silver-gold core-shell structures – Ag-Au core-shell) were evaluated based on their plasmonic and SERS sensitivity. Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) were used to measure the size, shape and distribution of the nanoparticles to correlate them with the obtained plasmonic/Raman capabilities. The technological parameters of nanoisland fabrication for optimal sensitivities are presented.
