Surface enhanced Raman spectroscopic substrate utilizing gold nanoparticles on carbon nanotubes

Document Type


Publication Date



This paper reports a new low cost technique for fabricating Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy substrates. A Gold (Au) nano-metallic structure for surface enhancement is created by depositing Au nanoparticles on a Multi-wall Carbon Nanotube layer previously deposited on the etched Aluminum foil. A low cost, simple method is used to deposit the nanotubes. Huge enhancements have been observed in both in vitro and in vivo measurements.
