A novel protein recognition platform is developed using aptamer-linked polythiophene nanowires. As the aptamer functionalized poly (3-methylthiophene) nanowire is treated by the specific protein, resonance Raman and photoluminescence signals are simultaneously enhanced. Statistical analyses deliver the capability of a single conjugated polymer nanowire with phase-transition characteristics in response to selectivity and concentration.
