We present two novel SERS substrates which allow easily achievable sub-10 nm gaps — ‘Nanoparticles inside Nanolines’ and ‘Nanofingers inside Nanowires’. Theoretical studies based on Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) modelling as well as large-are fabrication methodologies for developing these substrates are discussed.
