Carrier recombination and plasmonic emission channels in metallic photoluminescence

Abstract : We systematically investigate the metallic photoluminescence (MPL) emitted from plasmonic nanoparticles (NPs) upon excitation with ultrafast laser pulses using a scanning confocal optical microscope (SCOM). By comparing the emission spectra of Au NPs of varying dimensions with the corresponding dark-field scattering spectra, indications are found that MPL encompasses two emission channels: the particle plasmons (PPs) and the electron–hole (e–h) pair recombination. The plasmons can be interpreted to play a twofold role: in the excitation process they provide the local field enhancement, and in the emission process they offer extra radiation channels.
