Brownian motion of gold nanostructures made visible using SERS fluctuations due to single molecules

Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) a surface-sensitive effect which produces a dramatic enhancement of the Raman signature of molecules adsorbed on some nanostructures such as gold nanoparticles. In practical terms, SERS allows the fast acquisition of spectral datasets
