Nanoparticle-coated PDMS elastomers for enhancement of Raman scattering
Date of Issue2011
School of Materials Science and Engineering
A simple but efficient method for highly sensitive Raman detection, covering a thin polydimethylsiloxane elastomer, pre-coated with a layer of Au or Ag nanoparticles, onto the detected substrate, is proposed. Moreover, this nanoparticle-coated PDMS elastomer can be used for chemical imaging with high sensitivity.
