Abstract

What we believe to be a new label-free multichannel biosensing platform is proposed. It is composed of surface-immobilized gold nanospheres (SIGNs) above a gold surface with a nanogap supported by a merocyanine self-assembled monolayer. The circular SIGN spots with a diameter of 120μm were arrayed for multichannel biosensing on a glass slide. Two kinds of sensing methods were examined: One is a reflectivity measurement of a blue ray and the other is a second-harmonic generation measurement. It was found that the SIGN system can be used as a promising platform for multichannel biosensing in both sensing methods.
