Abstract

Utrasensitive detection of trace analytes by fluorescence benefits forfluorescence amplifying substrates. We review here our recent work concerned withunderstanding of enhancement mechanisms and formation of three such substrates: silverfractals, silver coated gold nanoparticles deposited on glass and fluorescence enhancinggold colloids.
