Physical mechanism on exciton-plasmon coupling revealed by femtosecond pump-probe transient absorption spectroscopy.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The unclear mechanism of exciton-plasmon coupling interaction in monolayer MoS2-Ag nanoparticles hybrid, as a longstanding target in molecular nanotechnology and catalysis, is systemically investigated with transmission spectra and femtosecond pump-probe transient absorption spectroscopy in this paper. The properties of exciton in monolayer MoS2 are strongly enhanced due to the local surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) induced by Ag nanoparticles, and manifested by obvious changes in transmission spectra. Furthermore, we discuss the dynamic processes of exciton-plasmon coupling interaction with the femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy, which indicates that there are three lifetimes, Auger scattering, electron-electron interaction and electron-phonon interaction, and illustrate the reason of the enlarged lifetime in hybrid system. Meanwhile, the intensity of A excitonic state in femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy is significantly enhanced by LSPR, instead of excitonic state B. In conclusion, our study can promote the deeper understanding and illustrate the unique merits of the exciton-plasmon coupling interaction in the monolayer MoS2-Ag nanoparticles hybrid system.
