Metal-enhanced fluorescence (MEF) is widely employed in high-sensitivity detection. In this work, the effect of pattern features of silver nanoparticle (SNP) arrays on MEF is investigated. It is shown that the intensity of MEF can be tuned by varying the SNP arrays. Strong MEF can be achieved by adjusting the pattern features.
