Generation of singlet oxygen by direct irradiation of naked gold nanoparticles is observed using either continuous wave or pulsed laser sources. The underlying mechanism involves plasmon- and hot-electron-mediated reaction pathways and 1O2 seems to significantly amplify the overall death rates during photothermal treatment of cancer cell lines in vitro.
