Abstract:We also utilized the pump-probe transient absorption measurement to probe thermal transport in Au-core polymer-shell nanoparticles. The addition of an organic co-solvent to the suspension causes the polystyrene component of the polymer shell to swell and this change in the microstructure of the shell increases the effective thermal conductivity of the shell by a factor of approximately 2. The corresponding time-scale for the cooling of the nanoparticle decreases from 200 ps to approximately 100 ps.
