Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) is a surface sensitive vibrational spectroscopy technique that results in the enhancement of Raman scattering by molecules adsorbed on rough metal surfaces. It is a powerful, sensitive and non-destructive technique which is used in chemical, material and life sciences including biosensing, catalysis, spectroelectrochemistry, criminology, single molecule SERS applications and many others. Nanoparticle (NP) embedded multilayer films using Layer by Layer (LbL) technique is one of the types of SERS substrates that have unique properties. Herein, pH-controllable exponentially grown (rougher) and linear grown (smoother) (Poly(allylamine hydrochloride)/Poly(acrylic acid)) polyelectrolyte-NP multilayer film systems were studied for sensing benzenethiol (BT) molecule (up to 10-7M). The effects of number of polyelectrolyte layers and deposition times of gold (Au) NPs on SERS signals were studied and the enhancements in Raman signals are similar for all the studied systems. Characterizations of these surfaces are made by UV-vis Spectrometer, Zeta sizer, Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) and Raman Spectrometer.

Metallic nanoparticles (NPs) with various elemental composition, size, shape and physical or chemical properties has become active field of research. Among all the metal NPs noble metal ones are receiving much attention due to their special optical properties which make them useful for different applications. Noble metal NPs have bright colors resulting from strong surface plasmon resonance absorption usually in the visible region. The colors are size and shape dependent and provide the tuning of optical pr...
The controlled drift detector as an x-ray imaging device for diffraction enhanced imaging
Özkan, Çiğdem; Serin, Meltem; Department of Physics (2009)
Diffraction Enhanced Imaging (DEI) is an X-ray imaging technique providing specific information about the molecular structure of a tissue by means of coherently scattered photons. A Controlled Drift Detector (CDD) is a novel 2D silicon imager developed to be used in X-ray imaging techniques. In this work a final (complete and detailed) analysis of DEI data taken with the CDD in the ELETTRA synchrotron light source facility in Trieste (Italy) in 2005, is presented and the applicability of both this new techn...
Properties of Al2O3: nc-Si nanostructures formed by implantation of silicon ions into sapphire and amorphous films of aluminum oxide
Tetelbaum, D. I.; Mikhaylov, A. N.; Belov, A. I.; Ershov, A. V.; Pitirimova, E. A.; Plankina, S. M.; Smirnov, V. N.; Kovalev, A. I.; Turan, Raşit; Yerci, Selçuk; Finstad, T. G.; FOSS, SEAN (2009-02-01)
Photoluminescence, infrared Fourier spectroscopy, Raman scattering, transmission electron microscopy, and electron diffraction were used to study the luminescent, optical, and structural properties of aluminum oxide layers (sapphire and films of Al2O3 deposited on silicon) implanted with Si+ to produce silicon nanocrystals. It is established that, in both cases, a high-temperature annealing of heavily implanted samples brings about the formation of silicon nanocrystals. However, the luminescent properties o...
Observation of Oscillatory Surface Reactions of Riboflavin, Trolox, and Singlet Oxygen Using Single Carbon Nanotube Fluorescence Spectroscopy
Sen, Fatih; Boghossian, Ardemis A.; Sen, Selda; Ulissi, Zachary W.; Zhang, Jingqing; Strano, Michael S. (2012-12-01)
Single-molecule fluorescent microscopy allows semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) to detect the adsorption and desorption of single adsorbate molecules as a stochastic modulation of emission intensity. In this study, we identify and assign the signature of the complex decomposition and reaction pathways of riboflavin in the presence of the free radical scavenger Trolox using DNA-wrapped SWCNT sensors dispersed onto an aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) coated surface. SWCNT emission is qu...
Investigation of silver-induced crystallization of germanium thin films fabricated on different substrates
Kabacelik, Ismail; KULAKCI, MUSTAFA; Turan, Raşit (2015-06-01)
Silver-induced crystallizations of amorphous germanium (alpha-Ge) thin films were fabricated through electron beam evaporation on crystalline silicon (c-Si) (100), aluminum-doped zinc oxide (AZO), and glass substrates at room temperature. The solid-phase crystallization (SPC) of alpha-Ge films was investigated for various post-annealing temperatures between 300 and 500 degrees C for 60 min. Two crystallization approaches were compared: SPC and metal-induced crystallization (MIC). The structural properties o...
