Effects of Gold Nanoparticles on Fluorescence Polarization and Emission Spectra of Rhodamine 6G Solution
Fluorescence polarization and emission spectra of Rhodamine 6G solution with gold nanoparticles have been studied. It is found that the emission intensities tend to be low when the gold nanoparticles are added into the solution partly due to the energy transfer from the Rhodamine 6G to gold nanoparticles. The fluorescence polarization increases as the concentration ratio of the gold and Rhodamine 6G is more than 124 and decreases as the ratio is about 1115. The enhancement and reduction of fluorescence polarization values are understood as the shortening of the fluorescence lifetime and a temperature effect from the heating of gold nanoparticles, respectively.
