Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Raman spectroscopy records the spectrum of light inelastically scattered by a medium upon its excitation with monochromatic light and is capable of material characterization through its characteristic vibrations. This nondestructive method can give information on chemical structure and bonding, phase and polymorphism, as well as contamination and impurities of the medium, and even on its intrinsic stress and temperature. Recent developments in Raman instrumentation allow fabricating highly sensitive and selective, yet compact and robust Raman spectrometers. This is accompanied by a rapid advancement in novel Raman techniques, such as surface enhanced Raman scattering, spatially offset Raman spectroscopy, stimulated Raman scattering, etc. This Special Issue of Applied Sciences attempts to cover recent advances and novel applications of Raman spectroscopy, including new achievements in the field of Raman instrumentation, methodology, linear and nonlinear processes, and different applications.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

In this study, metallic nanoislands were prepared by thermal annealing of gold thin film produced by vacuum evaporation on a glass substrate to investigate the surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) effect on them. The influence of the analyte on the enhancement factor of SERS was studied with riboflavin and rhodamine 6G dye. Two laser excitation sources at 532 and 633 nm wavelengths were used for SERS measurements. We found that the enhancement factors of the gold nanoisland SERS substrates were influenced by the analytes’ adsorption tendency onto their surfaces. The SERS amplification was also found to be dependent on the electronic structure of the molecules; higher enhancement factors were obtained for rhodamine 6G with 532 nm excitation, while for riboflavin the 633 nm source performed better.
