Biosensing applications of Plasmon Resonance in gold nanoparticles
out of 5 stars
02 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Karina Moore
Light can be used to excite plasmon resonance in gold nanoparticles. Plasmon resonance occurs on the nanoscale as the particles become excited and plasmon oscillations arise in each particle of a pair of metal nanoparticles. There is plasmon coupling between the neighboring particles as the...

26 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: David D. Nolte
While single-molecule detection through fluorescence has now become common-place, there has been no analogous single-molecule capability using direct detection approaches such as interferometry. This limitation is slowly yielding to high-speed interferoemtric detection that is pushing the...
Nanocomposite-Modified Electrodes for Sensing Biological Analytes
30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: V. Yegnaraman
Electrochemical sensing of analytes is mostly enabled by transducers based on potentiometry and amperometry. In this, design of sensing (working) electrode is of utmost importance since it only decides the sensitivity and selectivity features of the sensor. Chemical modification of the electrode...
