Abstract

Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy is a plasmonics-based spectroscopic technique that combines modern laser spectroscopy with unique optical properties of metallic nanostructures, resulting in strongly increased Raman signals when molecules are adsorbed on or near nanometer-size structures of special metals such as gold, silver, and transition metals. This chapter provides a synopsis of the development and application of SERS-active metallic nanostructures, especially for the analysis of biologically relevant compounds. Some highlights of this chapter include reports of SERS as an immunoassay readout method, SERS gene nanoprobes, near-field scanning optical microscopy SERS probes, SERS as a tool for single-molecule detection, and SERS nanoprobes for cellular studies.
