Gold Nanostars: A Tunable Plasmonic Tool for Highly Sensitive SERS-based Detection

Thursday, July 23, 2015
Laura Fabris, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Rutgers University

Near field techniques, such as surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), rely on the ability of plasmonic nanoparticles to induce localized electromagnetic field enhancements in close proximity to the metallic surface. The possibility of achieving more  »
