Plasmonic sensing has been an important multidisciplinary research field and has been extensively used in detection of trace molecules in chemistry and biology. The sensing techniques are typically based on surface-enhanced spectroscopies and surface plasmon resonances (SPRs). This review article deals with some recent advances in surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) sensors and SPR sensors using either localized surface plasmon resonances (LSPRs) or propagating surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs). The advances discussed herein present some improvements in SERS and SPR sensing, as well as a new type of nanowire-based SPP sensor.
Keywords: surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS); surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensors; localized surface plasmon resonances (LSPRs); surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS); surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensors; localized surface plasmon resonances (LSPRs); surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs)
