Abstract

The optical response exhibited by a complex hybrid system integrated by Pt ultrasmall fluorescent particles and plasmonic Ag nanoparticles is reported. The system was synthesized by coimplantation of Ag and Pt ions into a silica matrix followed by a proper thermal annealing. The energies and fluences were chosen in order to overlap the spatial regions of the Ag and Pt ion distributions below the silica surface. Optical absorption and emission spectroscopies show that the complex nanostructures exhibit an important plasmonic response, together with photoluminescence excited at 355 nm, which is enhanced when compared to the reference sample with only Pt particles. Off-resonance nonlinear transmission and Z-scan measurements were undertaken using ultrafast pulses. High-irradiance excitation at 1064 nm with picosecond pulses shows that the Pt or Ag nanoparticles exhibit a two-photon absorption effect, while the complex system shows the absence of any nonlinear absorption. Similar observations were made using femtosecond pulses at 800 nm wavelength. This inhibition of the two-photon absorption effect and enhancement in the emission of the complex hybrid samples by the synergic participation of Ag and Pt particles can be explained as a result of a plasmon coupling via the near-field interaction between plasmonic and emitting sources.
