Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering on Self-assembled Nano Silver Film Prepared by Electrolysis Method
- Received Date: 2009-03-02
Abstract: We demonstrate surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) detection of self-assembled nano silver film using a low-cost electrolysis strategy at a proper voltage and silver nitrate concentration in electrolyte. The concentration dependence of SERS from crystal violet (CV) molecules adsorbed to silver film was systematically studied. Importantly, the SERS surface enhancement factor of such nano silver film was 603, which was measured by a portable Raman spectrometer. The minimum concentration of detectable CV molecules can be as low as 10-11 mol/L. The nano silver film prepared by this electrolysis method is an active, stable, cost-effective, and reusable SERS substrate.
