Abstract

We investigate the metal enhanced fluorescence by silver nanospheres on a thin silver substrate. Experimental measurements for core/shell colloidal nanocrystals embedded in a polymer matrix show a fluorescence enhancement factor of about 9. We apply the discrete dipole approximation method to describe the local-field enhancement factor (LFEF). We find that the observed fluorescence enhancement is related to the broad LFEF profile induced by the substrate.
