Abstract

We have studied the enhancement of radiative emission rate of CdSe/ZnS core-shell quantum dots on semi-continuous gold films which have been prepared by using sputtering technique. The photoluminescence intensity and the decay rate of CdSe/ZnS quantum dots are affected by the semi-continuous gold films. Both the photoluminescence intensity and the decay rate of the quantum dots are greatly enhanced by the semi-continuous gold films near the conductive percolation threshold and that are caused by the enhanced local electric field due to the surface plasmon resonance on the semi-continuous gold films.
