Highly efficient surface enhanced Raman scattering using microstructured optical fibers with enhanced plasmonic interactions
Applied Physics Letters, 92, (14), . (doi:10.1063/1.2907506).
Microstructured optical fibers "MOFs" represent a promising platform technology for fully integrated photonic-plasmonic devices. In this paper, we experimentally investigate the properties of two MOF templates impregnated with silver nanoparticles via a high pressure chemical deposition technique. By comparing fiber templates with different air filling fractions, we have quantified the importance of an increased field-particle overlap for improved surface enhanced Raman scattering sensitivity for the next generation of optical fiber sensors.
