Carbon dioxide to fuel: SERS reveals all

Date: Oct 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy reveals how carbon dioxide is activated chemically at the electrode-electrolyte interface offering a solution to a 150-year old puzzle and potentially leading the way to a rational approach to converting the greenhouse gas into renewable energy storage materials.

Nano-actuator: SERS benefits

Date: Sep 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) and related techniques could benefit from the development of a novel nanoactuator system, where conformation of biomolecule can be tuned by electric field and probed using optical properties of gold nanoparticle.

The big antifreeze: Raman thaws out the science

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Simulated Raman spectroscopy has provided new insights into how antifreeze proteins, which have been known about for decades, actually work to keep alive animals such as fish and insects despite many living in temperatures that would otherwise frees their bodily fluids.

Raman breath test: Detecting illicit drugs

Date: Jun 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

An inexpensive and yet high-performance chip based on surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) can test for illicit drugs such as cocaine, opioids, and marijuana as quickly as a breathalyzer can detect alcohol.according to new research from the USA. The device can quickly reveal such drugs in for samples of blood, urine, saliva, and even on the breath.
