The enhancement of surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) with nanogap-rich silver nanoislands surrounding glass nanopillars at wafer level is reported. High-density hot spots are generated by increasing the number of nanogap-rich nanoislands within a detection volume. The SERS substrate shows a high enhancement factor of over 10(7) with excellent signal(More)
This work reports an optofluidic SERS chip with plasmonic nanoprobes self-aligned along microfluidic channels. Plasmonic nanoprobes with rich electromagnetic hot spots are selectively patterned along PDMS microfluidic channels by using a Scotch tape removal and oxygen plasma treatment, which also provide the permanent bonding between PDMS and a glass(More)
A quantitative correlation between plasmon resonance and surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) signals is revealed by using a novel active plasmonic method, that is, a deformable nanoplasmonic membrane. A single SERS peak has the maximum gain at the corresponding plasmon resonance wavelength, which has the maximum extinction product of an excitation and(More)
A novel active surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) platform for dynamic on-demand generation of SERS active sites based on optoelectrofluidics is presented in this paper. When a laser source is projected into a sample solution containing metal nanoparticles in an optoelectrofluidic device and an alternating current (ac) electric field is applied, the(More)
This work reports plasmon enhanced photoacoustic generation by using a three dimensional plasmonic absorber. The 3D plasmonic absorber comprises a thin polymer film on glass nanopillar arrays with nanogap-rich silver nanoislands. The 3D plasmonic absorber clearly shows 24.6 times higher enhancement of photoacoustic signals at an excitation wavelength of 630(More)
This work presents a nanoplasmonic photoconductive antenna (PCA) with metal nanoislands for enhancing terahertz (THz) pulse emission. The whole photoconductive area was fully covered with metal nanoislands by using thermal dewetting of thin metal film at relatively low temperature. The metal nanoislands serve as plasmonic nanoantennas to locally enhance the(More)
The on-chip integration of a preconcentration chamber for ultrasensitive surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is shown. Small molecules are preconcentrated using 3D volumetric electromagnetic hotspots. The experimental results demonstrate an enhancement of the SERS signals of over two orders of magnitude, which allows the fingerprinting of(More)
