Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) is a popular method that amplifies weak Raman signals from Raman-active analyte molecules making use of certain specially-prepared metallic surfaces. The main challenge in SERS is to design and fabricate highly repeatable, predictable, and sensitive substrates. There are many fabrication methods that strive to achieve this goal, which are briefly summarized in this paper. The E-beam lithography method is proposed to be superior to the mentioned techniques. In this paper, we review how EBL can be utilized in the preparation of SERS substrates and we discuss the contributions to the field by the Ozbay group.


Laser induced periodic surface structuring for surface enhanced raman spectroscopy
Özkarslıgil, Zeynep Tuğçe; Bek, Alpan; Department of Physics (2020)
In this study, our aim is to fabricate and characterize efficient substrates of surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) utilizing the field enhancement due to hot spots made by recently developed method of laser induced periodic surface structuring (LIPSS). LIPSS is a cost-effective technique for rapid processing of almost any materials compared to conventional lithography methods. Coating of a thin silver film on LIPSS applied substrate surface provides to observe the localized surface plasmon effect fo...
Optical characterization of silicon based hydrogenated amorphous thin films by un-visible and infrared measurements
Kılıç, İlker; Katırcıoğlu, Bayram; Department of Physics (2006)
Various carbon content hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbide (a-Si1ŁxCx:H) and hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) thin films have been deposited on various substrates by using plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD) technique. Transmission spectra of these films have been determined within UV-Visible region and the obtained data were analysed to find related physical constants such as; refractive indices, thicknesses, etc. Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrometry technique has been u...

Mercury speciation in aqueous solutions containing inorganic mercury and methylmercury has been demonstrated using electrochemical separation prior to determination by cold-vapour atomic absorption spectrometry. Approximately 95% of the inorganic mercury was electro-deposited on a Pt electrode at –0.1 V, whereas for methylmercury –0.2 V or even more negative potentials were required. Organic mercury was determined by NaBH4 reduction after electrochemical separation. Inorganic mercury was determined in the o...
Use of gold nanoparticle containing poly (allylamine hydrochloride)/ poly (acrylic acid) multilayer films as sers substrates
Kölemen, Birsu; Ertaş, Gülay; Erel Göktepe, İrem; Department of Chemistry (2015)
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) techniq...
Chemical Interactions of Nano Islandic Graphene Grown on Titanium Dioxide Substrates by Chemical Vapor Deposition
Karamat, S.; Khalique, U.; Usman, Arslan; Javaid, Asad; Oral, Ahmet (2022-03-01)
In this work, direct growth of graphene is carried out on TiO2 (110) substrates by chemical vapor deposition. For few device applications, it is convenient to grow graphene directly on the dielectric substrates rather than metal foil to minimize transfer and surface interface defects. Raman spectrum support graphene growth on TiO2 substrate by exhibiting D and G peaks. Graphene covered the whole TiO2 substrate with few areas where higher growth of carbon atoms occurs. The contrast of SEM images clearly show...
