Single-Molecule Nonresonant Wide-Field Surface-Enhanced Raman
Scattering from Ferroelectrically Defined Au Nanoparticle Microarrays


Researchers around James Rice from Dublin, Ireland, are using self-assembled, highly ordered structures of gold nanoparticles to demonstrate molecule sensing at ultralow concentrations and excitation powers.

The team uses surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) in the presence of the Au nanoparticles and perform microscopic Raman spectroscopy and imaging.
