Integrated Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy Sensors for Process Monitoring

, , , , , , , , , ,
Optical metamaterials obtain their unique properties from the combination of nanoscale plasmonic components and dielectric components. Reproducible mass-production of metamaterials is challenging but desirable for applications such as surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) for chemical sensing. [...]

Biomimetic Nanoreactors via in situ Synthesis of Atomically-Thin Gold Sheets and Platinum Nanoclusters

, , , , ,
We present the synthesis and activity of broadly stable polymer-metal nanoreactors capable of confinement-enhanced catalysis. Poly(styrene-alt-maleic acid), SMA, is known to self-assemble in water into highly organized supramolecular nanostructures containing confined polar and non-polar reaction [...]
