Studies from Max-Planck-Institute for Colloids and Interfaces in the Area of Colloids and Interface Science Reported (Controllable metal-enhanced fluorescence in organized films and colloidal system)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Fresh data on Colloids and Interface Science are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Potsdam, Germany, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "In recent years, considerable efforts have been devoted to better understand the unique emission properties of fluorophores enhanced by the localized surface plasmon resonance of metal nanoparticles (NPs), due to the widespread applications of fluorescence techniques."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Max-Planck-Institute for Colloids and Interfaces, "It is demonstrated by experiment and theoretical calculation that the enhancement efficiency strongly depends on the morphology of the metal NPs, the spectral overlap between metal and fluorophores, the separation distance between them, and other factors. Among these aspects to be considered are suitable spacer material and assembling methods to control the spatial arrangement of plasmonic NPs and fluorophore with proper optical properties and interactions."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In this contribution, we provide a brief overview on recent progress of metal-enhanced fluorescence in organized films and colloidal systems."
