Abstract: Exceptional optical limiting properties were observed in coupled Au and Ag nanoparticles that are induced by conjugated polymers. Fluence-dependent transmission measurements using 7-ns laser pulses of 532-nm wavelength showed that the optical limiting properties of Au and Ag nanoparticles were significantly enhanced upon assembly induced by addition of cationic conjugated polymers. The optical limiting performances of coupled Au and Ag nanoparticles (with optical limiting threshold as low as 2.8 J/cm 2 and 2.6 J/cm 2, respectively) are even better than that of the benchmark optical limiter-carbon nanotube suspensions (with threshold of 3.6 J/cm 2). In addition, these coupled Au and Ag nanoparticle solutions are very stable and suitable for practical applications. Input fluence and angle-dependent scattering experiments suggested that nonlinear scattering should play an important role in the observed optical limiting effects. © 2012 American Institute of Physics.
