SERS : Materials , applications , and the future REVIEW

The first observations of the Raman spectra of pyridine on roughened silver were made in 19741; however, at this time the authors did not recognize that these spectra were due to any unusual, enhanced, or new phenomena. Since its discovery in 19772, interest in and the use of surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) has grown exponentially (Fig. 1). The… CONTINUE READING
