A novel quantum dots (QDs) fluorescent encoding method was demonstrated in this paper by using Au coated polystyrene ([email protected]) beads. In the experiments, Au nanoparticles were deposited onto the polystyrene bead to form a stable Au coating through Layer-by-Layer assembly, and the surface morphology of the [email protected] beads was studied by Scanning Electronic Microscope (SEM). Furthermore, the QDs encoding abilities, including the loading of QDs, the anti-photo bleaching ability and the multi-color encoding feasibility were studied using [email protected] beads. The QDs leakage from doped QDs encoded [email protected] was also studied. This study shows that Au particles improve the QDs encoding performance and the QD-encoded [email protected] beads are the ideal material for the optical encoding.
