To obtain a coding system for multiplex detection, we have developed a method to synthesize a new type of nanomaterial called composite organic-inorganic nanoparticles (COINs). The method allows the incorporation of a broad range of organic compounds into COINs to produce surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-like spectra that are richer in variety than(More)
Achieving high signal amplification in surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is important for reaching single molecule level sensitivity and has been the focus of intense research efforts. We introduce a novel chemical enhancer, lithium chloride, that provides an additional order of magnitude increase in SERS relative to previously reported enhancement(More)
We report metal-free synthesis of high-density single-crystal elementary semiconductor nanowires with tunable electrical conductivities and systematic diameter control with narrow size distributions. Single-crystal silicon and germanium nanowires were synthesized by nucleation on nanocrystalline seeds and subsequent one-dimensional anisotropic growth(More)
Posttranslational modification (PTM) of proteins is likely to be the most common mechanism of altering the expression of genetic information. It is essential to characterize PTMs to establish a complete understanding of the activities of proteins. Here, we present a sensitive detection method using surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) that can detect(More)
The ability to quantify uncertainty in information extracted from spectroscopic measurements is important in numerous fields. The traditional approach of repetitive measurements may be impractical or impossible in some measurements scenarios, while chi-squared analysis does not provide insight into the sources of uncertainty. As such, a need exists for(More)
Film-like networks of Cu-doped (0.8-2.5 at.%) ZnO nanowires were successfully synthesized through a facile solution process at a low temperature (<100 degrees C). The pH value of solution plays a key role in controlling the density and quality of the Cu-doped ZnO nanowires and the dopant concentration of ZnO nanowires was controlled by adjusting the(More)
This thesis discusses the development of a near infrared spontaneous Raman scattering spectroscopic system designed to analyze blood chemical composition in human blood serum. Several analytic methods have been studied and verified for analyzing the Raman spectrum. Three experiments have been performed with a step by step approach to isolate and solve(More)
Concentrations of multiple analytes were simultaneously measured in whole blood with clinical accuracy, without sample processing, using near-infrared Raman spectroscopy. Spectra were acquired with an instrument employing nonimaging optics, designed using Monte Carlo simulations of the influence of light-scattering-absorbing blood cells on the excitation(More)
We report on the applicability of combining surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) with coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering for high-sensitivity detection of biological molecules. We found that this combination of techniques provides more than 3 orders of signal enhancement compared with SERS and permits monitoring of biological molecules such as(More)
