SERS Hotspot Engineering

Sculpting Artificial Edges in Monolayer MoS2 for Controlled Formation of Surface-Enhanced Raman Hotspots

Renu et. al. have demonstrated a hybrid SERS platform of MoS2 nanostructure decorated with gold nanoparticles, where direct laser writing is used to engineer the artificial edges on the surface of MoS2 to create localized hotspots with remarkable precision and control.
