Three-dimensional porous core-shell nanostructures consisting of gold skeletons and silver shells were fabricated by controllable electroless plating. Optical properties of the 3D nanocomposite with a heterogeneous interface exhibit a significant shell-thickness dependence. The porous core-shell structure with an optimized shell thickness of ∼3-5 nm exhibits a considerable improvement in surface-enhanced Raman scattering. This study has important implications in the functionalization of nanoporous metals by surface modification.
