abstract

We study the fluorescence enhancement of a single emitter coupled to two spherical gold nanoparticles and discuss the differences with respect to coupling to a single one. We also show that by changing the aspect ratio of the nanoparticles we can easily tune the plasmon-mediated enhancement from the infrared to the visible range. We present the fabrication of our nanoantennae by two alternative methods, namely X-ray interference lithography followed by focused ion beam milling and electron beam lithography. The manufactured structures are characterized individually by confocal microscopy.
