High sensitive SERS* substrates for Roman Spectroscopy
*SERS （Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering）
When light enters metal nanostructured surfaces, electromagnetic filed is amplified by surface plasmon resonance. In this field, Raman intensity of analyte is significantly enhanced (Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering), and it is used for high sensitive Raman spectroscopy analysis.
■Characteristics of our SERS substrates.
SERS substrates with Au and Ag fine structures are available. Encouraged excitation wavelengths are 780nm for Au-SERS and 532nm for Ag-SERS substrates. For both types of SERS substrates, expiry date is about 3 months after shipment.
【Application】Micro analysis such as environmental and pharmacentical inspection, Raw materials analysis, etc.
Specifically suitable for aqueous samples.
【Materials】Au or Ag fine structures on silicon or glass substrates.
