Gold nanoshells (Au@SiO2) and silica-covered gold nanoshells (SiO2@Au@SiO2) were fabricated by self-assembly and colloid reduction chem-istry. Hollow silica shells with movable silica spheres (H-SiO2@M-SiO2) were also prepared by the dissolution of gold shells within SiO2@Au@SiO2 particles. The results show that silica-covered gold nanoshells preserve the near-infrared absorbance of gold nanoshells. The plasmon resonance peaks of the resulting SiO2@Au@SiO2 could be controlled by changing the thickness of the outer silica shells. Furthermore, the gold shells within SiO2@Au@SiO2 particles could be removed by using aqua regia, and the related plasmon resonance peaks disappeared.

Key words: core-shell structure, gold nanoshell, silica-covered gold nanoshell, plasmon resonance, refractive index
