Abstract

Herein we illustrate an effective protocol to boost the optical enhancing properties of gold nanostars. By coating single nanostars with a mesoporous silica layer of the appropriate size (yolk capsules), to localize them under optical microscopy, it is possible to enumerate single particles and design SERS quantitative methods with minute amounts of metallic particles.
