Abstract

The plasmonic absorption band of silver nanoparticles in the visible range of electromagnetic spectrum has been successfully exploited to alter the emission characteristics of the Rhodamine 6G dye molecule. The influence of the nanoparticle size on the fluorescence quantum yield of Rhodamine 6G is interrogated via steady state fluorescence as well as dual beam thermal lens technique. The potential of the thermal lens technique that probe nonradiative path in contrast to radiative path exhibited in the fluorescence spectra as a complementary method to measure the quantum yield of a dye molecule is exploited. Analysis of the results clearly indicates that the particle size and the spectral overlap between the emission spectra of Rhodamine 6G, and absorption spectra of the silver nanoparticles determine the quantum yield value of dye-nanoparticle mixture.
