Plasmon quenching of a single gold nanoparticle in the gas phase — •Björn Bastian, Benjamin Hoffmann, Sophia Leippe, and Knut R. Asmis — Universität Leipzig, Wilhelm-Ostwald-Institut, Linnéstraße 2, D-04103 Leipzig

A split-ring electrode trap design has been optimized to quasi-continuously monitor the mass of single nanoparticles for action spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy and temperature-programmed desorption experiments. The aim is to investigate inherent properties of individual particles and their relation to parameters such as size, shape, temperature, charge state or surface functionalization. One example is a collective electron oscillation of metallic nanoparticles called localized surface plasmon resonance. New results are presented that show electronic action spectra of the plasmon resonance of a single 50 nm diameter gold particle and its stepwise quenching by radiative heating.

The particle mass is proportional to its secular frequency in the trap, which is typically monitored by resonant excitation. The resonance frequency is observed as a dip in the intensity of light scattered from the particle when sweeping an excitation frequency. Cryogenic cooling allows to control the adsorption of a messenger gas. Action spectra are obtained by observing the mass loss from desorption of the messenger due to absorption of light in the visible or infrared range.

We present results on plasmon quenching and current progress in implementing infrared action spectroscopy and to better characterize the particle temperature, adsorption and desorption dynamics.
