Graphene-a monolayer of graphite-has attracted vast interest recently owing to its perfect two-dimensional crystallographic nature and its potential use in a new generation of microelectronic devices. Yet, a deposition method, which results in a large coverage of monolayer thick graphite, is still lacking. By using a chemical mechanical polishing (CMP)(More)
We address curved IR screens for multiwavelength systems. To first-order of the approximation, a curved screen may be viewed as composed of many local flat screens. On the other hand, the validity of such an approximation is not clear a priori. We provide experiments and simulations to show that such an approximation works well for cylindrically curved IR(More)
We measured the Raman scattering of graphene deposited nanohole arrays. As the sample was azimuthally rotated, periodicities of 7.5 degrees and 5 degrees were revealed for the 2700 cm(-1) and 1600 cm(-1) Raman lines of graphene, respectively. This is contrary to the scattered laser line azimuthal symmetry of 30 degrees for the hole array alone. When a(More)
Suspended graphene waveguides over micrometer-scale metal-mesh screens were used as platforms for Raman scattering. Raman signals of B. megaterium spores were found sensitive to in-plane rotations and tilt of the waveguides with respect to the incident linearly polarized pump beam. When at plasmonic resonance for the equivalent long wavelength of the(More)
We used Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) to detect binding events between streptavidin and biotinylated lipid bilayers. The binding events took place at the surface between microfluidic channels and anodized aluminum oxide (AAO) with the latter serving as substrates. The bilayers were incorporated in the substrate pores. It was revealed that(More)
Targeted drug delivery and screening of drugs with specific affinity to membrane proteins require a good monitoring method. Here we monitor the binding of hemagglutinin (HA) to a model membrane- lipid bilayer- by using Infrared (IR) spectroscopy. IR spectroscopy is a useful spectroscopic tool to assess bio-molecular vibrations and provides with molecular(More)
