Abstract

Monolayers of gold nanostars (GNS) are grafted on mercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane-coated glass slides. In the formed monolayers the localized surface plasmon resonance of GNS can be tuned in the 700–1100 nm range. Upon laser excitation of the nearIR LSPR an efficient photothermal response is observed, inducing local hyperthermia and efficient killing of Staphylococcus aureus biofilms
