Abstract

The controlled side-by-side assembly of gold nanorods in solution together with Raman reporter dye molecules to create small SERRS-active clusters stabilised by a surrounding polymer layer is demonstrated. This promising new class of nanotags offers several advantages over spherical nanoparticles for bioimaging and is of potential importance for a wide range of plasmon-enhanced spectroscopies and can also serve as building blocks for more complex solution-phase nanostructures.
