Tailoring the optical properties of silver nanomaterials for diagnostic applications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Metallic silver (Ag) nanostructures play an essential role in determining sensitivity, specificity, and application in the context of the optical diagnostic techniques. In order to obtain the best sensitivity, some detection techniques require stringent Ag nanostructures, and it is for this reason that most such methods have not yet been commercialized. As many of the detection or enhancement phenomena are associated with the optical properties of the metallic silver nanostructures such as surface plasmon resonance (SPR), fluorescence quenching/enhancement, and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS), the quest for the “ideal” nanostructured silver materials to provide the best response has been central to the situation.
