Paper Abstract

The efficiency of generation of energetic plasmonic carriers in metal nanostructures strongly depends on the optical design and material composition. This study demonstrates the ability to generate large numbers of hot plasmonic carriers in specially-designed hybrid nanostructures with hot spots. Overall, nanostructures with small sizes or with hot spots can create unusually large numbers of energetic electrons that can be observed using ultra-fast spectroscopy or in photo-chemical experiments.
