Plasmonic nanomaterials have been intensively explored for applications in biomedical detection and therapy for human sustainability. Herein, plasmonic gold nanoisland (NI) film (AuNIF) was fabricated onto a glass substrate by a facile seed-mediated growth approach. The structure of the tortuous gold NIs of the AuNIF was demonstrated by scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Based on the ultraviolet-visible spectrum, the AuNIF revealed plasmonic absorption with maximum intensity at 624 nm. With the change to the surface topography created by the NIs, the capture efficiency of Escherichia coli (E. coli) by the AuNIF was significantly increased compared to that of the glass substrate. The AuNIF was applied as a surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate to enhance the Raman signal of E. coli. Moreover, the plasmonic AuNIF exhibited a superior photothermal effect under irradiation with simulated AM1.5 sunlight. For photothermal therapy, the AuNIF also displayed outstanding efficiency in the photothermal killing of E. coli. Using a combination of SERS detection and photothermal therapy, the AuNIF could be a promising platform for bacterial theranostics.
