Time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) and transient absorption (TA) spectroscopy are conducted in order to get knowledge on the excited state of CdSe nanorods (NR), and to assess the impact of Au nanoparticles (NP) on the carrier dynamics of hybrid Au-CdSe NRs. The decay dynamics measured in solution show an increase of non-radiative decay channels in the presence of Au NPs, whose characteristic lifetimes vary from a few ps to tens of ps. The ultrafast electron transfer from CdSe NRs to Au NPs efficiently competes with intraband relaxation dynamics, allowing observation of the hot-electron transfer process. Furthermore, the time-averaged PL decay of CdSe NRs shows a strongly multiexponential feature that was analyzed by single-particle spectroscopy. The PL decay of individual NRs fluctuates in time and is correlated with the PL intensity. We show that the time-averaged decay of bare CdSe NRs is composed of (i) a long lifetime component corresponding to bright CdSe NRs (ON state) and (ii) a short lifetime component corresponding to charged NRs that open additional fast non-radiative channels (OFF state). When Au NPs are attached to CdSe NRs, the ON state PL decays still show a long lifetime component, suggesting that the length of the NRs may hinder electron transfer if the exciton is formed far from the Au NPs. Finally, quantitative analysis of the OFF state decays shows that electron transfer occurs even in the presence of fast non-radiative pathways in charged systems.
