Abstract

In this chapter, we present the relationship between the superheated liquid and bubble formation for a single optically excited nanostructure at the gold water interface using AlGaN:Er3+ nanothermometry, and contrast these properties with vapor formation in a colloidal solution of optically excited gold nanoparticles. Bubble formation for a single nanostructure at a solid water interface is an inherently a low probability event with superheating of the liquid to the spinodal decomposition temperature.
