Spaghetti-like Surface Makes Stronger SERS Sensor

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
ZURICH & LIVERMORE, Calif., Aug. 30, 2013 — Spaghetti-like arrays of gold-coated metallic carbon nanotubes can amplify the signals of surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) enough to perform analyses that are more reliable, sensitive and cost-effective. Previously the detection limit of common SERS systems was in the nanomolar range (one billionth of a mole), providing adequate signal strength in isolated cases only, and yielding results with low reproducibility. But a new sensor developed jointly by ETH Zurich and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) uses plasmonics to massively amplify the signals of...Read full article
