The fabrication of accentuated gold microstructures is demonstrated by multi-photon photoreduction inside an anionic fluorophore-containing hydrogel. We attempted to facilitate gold-ion photoreduction near the focal point of laser pulses, expecting the donation of electrons by the oxidation of fluorophores in the vicinity of gold ions. The presence of anionic FITCdextran also inhibited the spontaneous reduction in untargeted zones, which is attributed to the coordination of gold ions and the anionic FITC-dextran. Simultaneous facilitation and inhibition are promising for the fabrication of dense metal microstructures in the targeted zone while maintaining the hydrogel's light permeability.
