We report a novel surface enhanced Raman Scattering SERS substrate platform based on a common filter paper adsorbed with plasmonic nanostructures. Paper based SERS substrate overcomes many of the challenges associated with conventional SERS substrates based on rigid substrates such as silicon and glass. The paper-based design results in a substrate that combines all of the advantages of conventional rigid and planar SERS substrates in a dynamic flexible scaffolding format. We discuss the fabrication, physical characterization and SERS activity of our novel substrates using non-resonant analytes.
