Nano Convergence is calling for submissions to our Collection on Surface-enhanced Raman Scattering.

About the Collection

Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is a fascinating phenomenon within the realm of spectroscopy and nanotechnology that has garnered significant attention for its remarkable sensitivity and wide-ranging applications. 

This thematic series offers a deep dive into the intricate world of SERS, exploring its fundamental principles, technological advancements, and diverse applications across various fields. The focus is on the diverse array of nanomaterials used in SERS and the fabrication techniques employed to create surfaces that induce significant signal enhancement. It covers metallic nanoparticles, nanostructures, and novel fabrication methods like lithography, chemical synthesis, and self-assembly.

The collections topics includes, but are not limited to:

  • Nanomaterials and Fabrication Techniques: Here, the focus is on the diverse array of nanomaterials used in SERS and the fabrication techniques employed to create surfaces that induce significant signal enhancement. It covers metallic nanoparticles, nanostructures, and novel fabrication methods like lithography, chemical synthesis, and self-assembly.
  • Applications in Biomedical & Analytical Sciences: One of the most exciting aspects of SERS lies in its applications in biomedical fields. This section explores its use in biosensing, bioimaging, and disease diagnosis. Topics may include detecting biomarkers, imaging cellular structures, and advancing therapeutic monitoring techniques.
  • Emerging Trends and Future Prospects: The series culminates in discussing the cutting-edge developments and potential future directions in SERS research.
