The phenomenon of localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) is caused by collective oscillations of conduction band electrons in the metal nanostructures under the influence of irradiating light. At present, this effect, which leads to a significant enhancement of the field in the vicinity of irradiated nanoparticles at resonant wavelengths, attracts increased attention of researchers and has found a wide variety of applications

[1], ranging from technologies of local hyperthermia and plasmon photocatalysis to SERS and plasmon-enhanced fluorescence (PEF). Developing the study of the PEF of plasmon-protein fluorescent complexes

[2], we present the results of calculations of the near-field enhancement in the vicinity of nanospheres synthesized from various materials - silver, gold, and copper. The solution of the problem of the distribution of the electric field during the irradiation of the nanosphere with an electromagnetic wave was carried out using both an analytical model (electrostatic approximation) and a finite element method implemented in the COMSOL software environment. The calculation models were verified in [3,4].

Since the fluorescence radiation power is proportional to the flux of exciting photons [5], it is of practical interest for the synthesis of efficient plasmon-protein fluorescent complexes to know the integral of the field amplification factor Is in the vicinity of nanospheres. A comparative analysis of the obtained spectral dependences of Is has shown that these dependences for nanospheres synthesized from various materials under study differ qualitatively and quantitatively from each other. However, their common feature is a certain correlation of Is with the corresponding absorption cross section spectra of Cabs nanoparticles. As a result of the studies, it was found that for a certain combination of factors (optical properties of the metal, size of the nanosphere, wavelength of the incident radiation), such a correlation between the amplification of the excitation field of the fluorophore and the resonant absorption of radiation by the nanoparticle can play a negative role. This is due to the fact that the heating induced by light absorption in the vicinity of a nanoparticle can lead to an undesirable effect of fluorescence quenching, which was experimentally shown in [6]. In our work, we propose a composite criterion for assessing the quality of plasmon-protein fluorescent complexes, taking into account the influence of the induced temperature field, and present the results of evaluating the effectiveness of complexes focused on the use of fluorophores in the range from UV to near IR. The prospects for the use of complexes based on silver nanospheres are shown, and the conditions for the competitiveness of complexes based on cheap copper nanospheres in comparison with traditional complexes based on gold nanospheres are determined.
