Plasmonic light yield enhancement of a liquid scintillator

Bignell, Lindsey J.; Mume, Eskender; Jackson, Timothy W.; Lee, George P.


We demonstrate modifications to the light yield properties of an organic liquid scintillator due to the localization of the tertiary fluorophore component to the surface of Ag-core silica-shell nanoparticles. We attribute this enhancement to the near-field interaction of Ag nanoparticle plasmons with these fluor molecules. The scintillation light yield enhancement is shown to be equal to the fluorescence enhancement within measurement uncertainties. With a suitable choice of plasmon energy and...[Show more]
