Surface enhanced fluorescence

  title={Surface enhanced fluorescence},
  author={Emmanuel Fort and Samuel Gr{\'e}sillon},
Fluorescence is widely used in optical devices, microscopy imaging, biology, medical research and diagnosis. Improving fluorescence sensitivity, all the way to the limit of single-molecular detection needed in many applications, remains a great challenge. The technique of surface enhanced fluorescence (SEF) is based upon the design of surfaces in the vicinity of the emitter. SEF yields an overall improvement in the fluorescence detection efficiency through modification and control of the local… CONTINUE READING
