Title: Surface plasmon polariton assisted red shift in excitonic emission of semiconductor microflowers

We report on the study of metal nanoparticle-semiconductor hybrid system composed of β-indium sulfide (β-In{sub 2}S{sub 3}) and gold (Au) nanoparticles. β-In{sub 2}S{sub 3} micron sized flower like structures (∼1 μm) and Au nanoparticles (∼10 nm) were synthesized by chemical route. These Au nanoparticles have surface plasmon resonance at ∼ 520 nm. We study the influence of Au surface plasmon polaritons on the radiative properties of the β-In{sub 2}S{sub 3} microflowers. As a result of the coupling between the surface plasmon polaritons and the excitons there is a red shift ∼ 50 nm in emission spectrum of hybrid β-In{sub 2}S{sub 3}-Au system. Such hybrid systems provide scope for a control on the optical properties of semiconductor microstructures, thus rendering them suitable for specific device applications in optoelectronics and photovoltaics.
