    Abstract

    Near-infrared pulsed-laser irradiation of silica-coated gold nanorods loaded with single-stranded oligonucleotides induced the release of the oligonucleotides without changing the morphology of the gold nanorods into spherical particles. Silica layers on the gold nanorods were advantageous to realize the efficient release of the oligonucleotides.
