Abstract

This study proposes a surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) chip integrated with a liquid core waveguide. Due to the total reflection, the chip suppresses the leaky waveguide mode and enables a long propagation distance for SERS signal collection. A 10 nM rhodamine 6G Raman signal was obtained using a QE65000 portable microspectrometer at a low excitation power intensity of 14.5 W/cm2. The proposed SERS chip was also used to detect the SERS spectrum of a silkworm DNA solution, the structural information of which was clearly shown. In addition, due to the lower excitation power density, damage to the structure of the biomolecule was avoided.
