Surface-active substrates for Raman and luminescence analysis.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This paper describes the development of active materials for optically enhanced Raman and fluorescence spectroscopy. The substrates for surface-enhanced Raman scattering investigated in this study involved silver-coated microspheres on glass plates. The effect of various experimental parameters, such as angle of incidence and excitation wavelength, were investigated. The substrate used for surface luminescence analysis consisted of a cellulose membrane coated with fumed silica microparticles, to enhance the sensitivity of analysis. Examples of analysis of benzo[a]pyrene and its derivatives are used to illustrate the efficacy of the analytical techniques.
