Surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) is a technique applied in multidisciplinary research. Its use has tremendously grown in the last 40 years owing to improved nanofabrication, biomolecules extraction and sensitive signal acquisition techniques.

This book focuses on the underlying principles of SERS by emphasizing on basic concepts and background information about the subject. Chapters explain the physics of Raman spectroscopy while also indicating its relevance to designing protocols and methodologies for biosensing and imaging. The book gives updated and recent details on colloids and nanostructures, their fabrication, surface engineering and immobilization methods, all in context to SERS based biosensing.

Key Features:

  • - Covers basic knowledge and new research about surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS)
  • - Provides a complete framework on SERS based biosensing with concise chapters
  • - Focuses on different active molecules critical to SERS and associated developed nanoassemblies
  • - Presents information about ongoing research on SERS imaging applications
  • - Highlights bottlenecks of SERS technique in biosensing
  • - Includes references for further reading

This book serves as a reference book for researchers and academicians and will also provide a reasonable understanding on the topic of SERS to newcomers irrespective of their background in a simple manner. The book is of interest to all readers within the scientific community involved with Raman spectroscopy, including chemists, physicists, biologists, material scientists as well as biomedical engineers.

Audience: All readers (researchers and academicians) within the scientific community involved with Raman spectroscopy, including chemists, physicists, biologists, material scientists as well as biomedical engineers.
