Large Scale Fabrication of Gold Nano-Structured Substrates Via High Temperature Annealing and Their Direct Use for the LSPR Detection of Atrazine

Abstract : The present work is reporting on the fabrication of localized surface plasmonic resonant (LSPR) gold nano-structures on glass substrate by using different high annealing temperatures (500 °C, 550 °C, 600 °C) of initially created semi-continue gold films (2 nm and 5 nm) by the electron beam evaporation technique. Interestingly, well-defined gold nano-structures were also obtained from continuous 8 nm evaporated gold film - known as the value above gold percolated thickness - once exposed to high temperatures. The surface morphology and plasmonic spectroscopy of “annealed” nano-structures were controlled by key experimental parameters such as evaporated film thickness and annealing temperature. By using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) characterization of annealed surface it was noticed that the size and inter-particle distance between nano-structures were highly dependent on the evaporated thin film thickness, while the nanoparticle shape evolution was mainly affected by the employed annealing temperature. Due to the well-controlled morphology of gold nano-particles, prominent and stable LSPR spectra were observed with good plasmon resonance tunability from 546 nm to 780 nm that recommend the developed protocol as a robust alternative to fabricate large scale LSPR surface. An example of a LSPR-immunosensor is reported. Thus, the monoclonal anti-atrazine antibodies immobilizion on the “annealed” gold nano-structures, as well as the specific antigen (atrazine) recognition were monitored as variations of the resonance wavelength shifts and optical density changes in the extinction measurements.
