This paper has demonstrated the resonance fluorescence enhancement of R6G when gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) deposited in the porous Si photonic crystal device. Both of microcavity (MC) and distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) with different parameters are investigated for making the photon transmission of photonic crystal device play an optimal role in enhancing fluorescence resonance. While minor changes were observed on the DBR substrates, a significant change in the intensity of enhanced fluorescence varies with the defect modes of MC substrates. Particularly, the strongest enhancement has been presented as the MC defect mode wavelength located at the maximum absorption wavelength of Au NPs. In this case, the fluorescence intensity of R6G on MC device is 2.5 times of that of R6G based on DBR device.
