Abstract

Chalcogenopyrylium nanotags demonstrate an unprecedented SERS performance with a retina safe, 1550 nm laser excitation. These unique nanotags consisting of chalcogenopyrylium dyes and 100 nm gold nanoparticles produce exceptional SERS signals with picomolar detection limits obtained at this extremely red-shifted and eye-safe laser excitation.
