Abstract:

We developed an approach based upon microfluidics and SERS that can detect drugs of abuse and explosives, as well as other molecules of interest for forensic analysis at ultra-low concentrations and with measurement times of a few minutes. The resulting approach will be applicable to field-portable and handheld surface-enhanced Raman instruments.
