Abstract:

This proposal investigates handheld chemical sensors that utilize surface-enhanced Raman spectrometry, or SERS. First, SERS will be developed utilizing nanoporous alumina membranes with selective binders and metallic nanodots. These devices have demonstrated 10^12 enhancement Second, a microfluidic chip will be developed to house the SERS substrate, provide fluid access to the SERS chip, and provide optical access to the SERS chip. Third, integrated optics will be developed to minimize internal optical losses in the detection train. Finally, the microfluidic chip, SERS chip, and optical train will be integrated into a brassboard system to demonstrate a handheld, portable SERS detector.
