Abstract

Various nanostructures for single-molecule surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) have been fabricated through a random aggregation process using nanoparticles that can stochastically generate multiple hotspots in the laser spot. This leads to multiple molecule detection. In this study, a single gold nanoparticle (AuNP) dimer with a single hotspot was fabricated in a laser spot controlling the position and orientation on a silicon substrate using a nanotrench-guided self-assembly. The Raman peaks of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) were dynamically observed, indicating a single DNA oligomer detection composed of adenine, guanine, cytosine, phosphate, and deoxyribose.
