Title: Photothermal transformation of Au–Ag nanocages under pulsed laser irradiation

Abstract

Pulsed laser irradiation can photothermally transform Au–Ag nanocages into pseudo-spherical, solid nanoparticles. The results may have implications for the future use of Au–Ag nanocages in biomedicine, catalysis, and sensing.
