Originally part of a presentation:
Detection of a single BSA molecule by amplifying its Raman signal.
Done with my friend: Pemba Lama
[I came up with the idea for amplifier (and detector scheme) so that is what I have posted]
For Course Project: Nano and Micro Photonics
Under Prof. Vinod Menon, Queens College and Graduate Center, CUNY
The project was devised so that students come up with original ideas, based on known physical principles, for the detection of a single molecule of BSA (a biological molecule). Unfortunately, this means we could not verify the validity of the work, and my work is no exception. It is my hope that I have not overlooked any relevant physical principles, and that this kind of amplifier is possible. If anyone finds my design promising then:
-I would certainly like to know the simulation and experimental results
-I would like credit in the resulting publication – Thanks.
The substrate work that I did prior to this (and the mis-conceived SPASER work that I previously came up with) is here:
The SPASER work there is fundamentally flawed, but perhaps the substrate work is not entirely useless.
