Abstract

Remote surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) imaging of an adsorbed monolayer was demonstrated through a nanostructured array of conical tips inscribed onto the distal face of a 30 cm optical fiber bundle. Despite intense Raman signal from the germanium oxide doped fibers, the Raman signal of an adsorbed monolayer of a reference compound (benzene thiol) was detected in the fingerprint region. This opens up the possibility of local remote imaging through an optical fiber that embeds a SERS active platform.

Principles of SERS through the fiber bundle in the backscattering geometry. The tip array (SEM image) coated with gold (30 nm) is located on the distal face while the Raman signal is collected at the proximal face. The Raman map (right) shows the color-coded variations of the intensity of a Raman band of adsorbed species that correlates with the tip apexes locations. Each pixel on the Raman map is a spectrum that was collected from an individual tip position.

(a) Tip enhanced Raman spectra collected at the proximal face of a 30 cm fiber bundle in the backscattering geometry. An acquisition time of 1.5 s per spectrum was used. The intensity of the signal collected between the fiber cores is scaled by a factor 100. (b) Fingerprint region between 800 and 1800 cm−1. (c) Raman mapping though a 30 cm long fiber bundle of the BT vibrational mode at 1576 cm−1.
