Paper Abstract

A technique capable of characterizing the spectral parameters of gold nanostructures is demonstrated. These properties are providing numerous advances in the field of high sensitive diagnostics, drug delivery and optical therapeutic applications. To obtain spectroscopic measurements of gold nanorods within a turbid media that mimics soft tissue, this work presents the potential of the photon to ultrasound conversion, by means of real-time Laser Optoacoustic Spectroscopy (LOS), The obtained results are shown for the complete wavelength range of 410 to 1000 nm that followed by a comprehensive comparative analysis with achieved results of parallel reference measurement schemeand standard spectrophotometry.
