Exploring the Nanoscale: Fifteen Years of Tip-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy

in: Applied Spectroscopy (2015)
Singh, Prabha; Langelüddecke, Lucas; Deckert, Volker
Spectroscopic methods with high spatial resolution are essential to understand the physical and chemical properties of nanoscale materials including biological and chemical materials. Tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS) is a combination of surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy and scanning probe microscopy (SPM) which can provide high resolution topographic and spectral information simultaneously below the diffraction limit of light. Even examples of sub-nanometer resolution have been demonstrated. This review intends to give an introduction to TERS, focusing on its basic principle and the experimental setup, the strengths followed by recent applications, developments and perspectives in this field.
