Abstract

We describe the synthesis and properites of hybrid Fe2O3-Au nanoparticles synthesized using a wet chemical approach. These nanoparticles are compared with Fe2O3 and Au nanoparticles prepared in corresponding manners. We investigate the visible light photothermal properties of these different nanoparticles. It is found that the hybrid Fe2O3-Au nanoparticles are able to photothermally heat aqueous solutions as efficiently as pure Au nanoparticles, even with a significantly smaller concentration of Au. Importantly, the hybrid structures retain the properties of both materials, creating a multifunctional structure with excellent magnetic and plasmonic properties.
