Paper Abstract

Here we report on the preparation of uniform Au@Ag core/shell nanorods with a controllable Ag shell thickness. 4- aminothiophenol molecules, used as the Raman reporters, were placed between the Au core and the Ag shell. The dependence of Raman intensity on the inside/surface location of the reporter molecules was studied. The interior molecules showed a strong and uniform Raman intensity, at least an order of magnitude higher than that of the molecules on the nanoparticle surface. In contrast to usual surface-functionalized Raman tags, aggregation and clustering of nanoparticles with embedded molecules decreased the SERS signal. The findings from this study provide the basis for a novel technique of low analyte concentration detection based on high SERS response inside the core/shell metal nanostructures.
