Nanostructured copper sulfides, promising earth-abundant p-type semiconductors, have found applications in a wide range of fields due to their versatility, tunable low bandgap, and environmental sustainability. The synthesis of hexagonal Cu7S4 at Au2S at Au nanorings exhibiting plasmon enhanced emissions at the direct bandgap is reported. The synthesized Cu7S4 at Au2S at Au nanorings show greatly enhanced absorption and emission by local plasmons compared to pure copper sulfide nanoparticles.
