Abstract Herein, we report a novel positively charged photoluminescent Au–Ag bimetallic nanocluster synthesized using 11-mercaptoundecyl-N,N,N-trimethylammonium bromide as the capping ligand by means of “green” double-target sputtering method on a biocompatible polymer matrix. The photoluminescent Au–Ag bimetallic cluster showed emission tunability from blue to near infrared (NIR) regions with respect to change in the composition.
