Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy using metallic nanostructures


Journal Article

This article provides an overview of the development and application of the surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) techniques using metal-coated nanostructures on solid substrates. An introduction to theoretical principles of the SERS effect and the different SERS-active media is presented. The focus is on nanostructured solid substrates and their practical applications in chemical, environmental and biomedical areas. Specific examples of analytical techniques, instruments and sensors developed in the author's laboratory will be discussed to illustrate the usefulness and potential of the SERS techniques.
