Bio-Enabled Gold Superstructures with Built-In and Accessible Electromagnetic Hotspots. Academic Article uri icon


  • The bio-enabled synthesis of a novel class of surface enhanced Raman scattering probes is presented for functional imaging with built-in and accessible electromagnetic hotspots formed between densely packed satellites grown on a plasmonic core. The superstructures serve as nanoscale sensors to spatiotemporally map intravesicular pH changes along endocytic pathways inside live cells.
