SERS – facts, figures and the future
Guest editors Duncan Graham, Martin Moskovits and Zhong-Qun Tian introduce the surface and tip enhanced spectroscopies issue of Chemical Society Reviews.
Electromagnetic theories of surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy
A fundamental theoretical understanding of SERS, and SERS hotspots, leads to new design principles for SERS substrates and new applications in nanomaterials and chemical analysis.
Mastering high resolution tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy: towards a shift of perception
Recent years have seen tremendous improvement of our understanding of high resolution reachable in TERS experiments, forcing us to re-evaluate our understanding of the intrinsic limits of this field, but also exposing several inconsistencies.
Tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy – from early developments to recent advances
An analytical technique operating at the nanoscale must be flexible regarding variable experimental conditions while ideally also being highly specific, extremely sensitive, and spatially confined. TERS has the potential to address all these items and its current status will be thoroughly discussed.
Plasmon-enhanced fluorescence spectroscopy
Fluorescence spectroscopy with strong emitters is a remarkable tool with ultra-high sensitivity for detection and imaging down to the single-molecule level.
Recent progress in surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy for biological and biomedical applications: from cells to clinics
In this tutorial review, we summarize the recent progress in SERS-based biological and biomedical applications – from cells to clinics.
Tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy for surfaces and interfaces
TERS offers the high spatial resolution to establish structure-function correlation for surfaces and interfaces.
Surface enhanced hyper Raman scattering (SEHRS) and its applications
Surface enhanced hyper Raman scattering (SEHRS) provides a wealth of vibrational information that can be useful in many directions of spectroscopy.
Photonics and spectroscopy in nanojunctions: a theoretical insight
Green function methods for photonics and spectroscopy in nanojunctions.
Plasmon-enhanced spectroscopy of absorption and spontaneous emissions explained using cavity quantum optics
The purpose of this tutorial review is to provide a comprehensive explanation of all types of plasmon-enhanced spectroscopies by cavity quantum optics.
Expanding applications of SERS through versatile nanomaterials engineering
Nanomaterials engineering and synthetic chemistry continues to expand the range of applications for surface-enhanced Raman scattering spectroscopy.
Anisotropic metal nanoparticles for surface enhanced Raman scattering
Anisotropy in plasmonic metal nanoparticles plays a major role in the enhancement of the Raman scattering of adsorbed molecules.
About this collection
We are delighted to present our Chemical Society Reviews themed issue on surface and tip enhanced spectroscopies. Guest edited by Duncan Graham (University of Strathclyde), Martin Moskovits (University of California, Santa Barbara) and Zhong-Qun Tian (Xiamen University), this issue aims to offer highlights topics including plasmon enhanced Raman scattering, tip enhanced Raman scattering and surface/tip enhanced IR spectroscopy, surface-enhanced fluorescence spectroscopy and surface-enhanced nonlinear spectroscopy from theoretical and experimental perspectives. In line with our collaborative approach for reviews, most articles in this themed issue will assemble joint contributions of leading groups and will explore both experimental and theoretical aspects in a combined approach. New articles will be added to this collection as they are published.
