We have developed a spectroscopic probe based on Sum Frequency Light Scattering SFLS that will enable us to conduct spectroscopic examination of colloidal surfaces to gain molecular level understanding at the colloidal surface. Through characterizing the surface properties of metallic nanoparticle, we have discovered a way to make super-bright luminescent metallic nanoparticles for sensing purposes. While working on the project stated in the original proposal, a discussion with the Program Officer prompted us to develop a new research aimed at solving a great mystery in astrophysics why there is inexplicable amount of HNC in excess of thermal equilibrium of HCN in interstellar media.
