Characterization of nanoporous gold disks for photothermal light harvesting and light-gated molecular release

Author affiliations

Abstract

Nanoporous gold disks (NPGDs) with 400 nm diameter, 75 nm thickness, and 13 nm pores exhibit large specific surface area and effective photothermal light harvesting capability with a conversion efficiency of 56%. A potential application is demonstrated by light-gated, multi-step molecular release of the pre-adsorbed R6G fluorescent dye on arrayed NPGDs.
