Molecular photodissociation enabled by ultrafast plasmon decay
Journal of Chemical Physics
We propose a strategy for enabling photodissociation of a normally photostable molecule through coupling to a nanoparticle plasmon. The large possible coupling on the single-molecule level combined with the highly lossy nature of plasmonic modes, with lifetimes on the order of femtoseconds, opens an ultrafast decay channel for the molecule. For plasmon mode frequencies below the vertical photoexcitation energy of the molecule, the difference between the excitation and emission energies isdoi:10.1063/5.0037856 pmid:33412870 fatcat:22odpw33o5cpvkbh7cccxfckky
