Actuatable gold nanoparticle dimers for protein sensing are presented. By monitoring the spectral blue shift in the hybridized bonding plasmon mode instead of the conventional refractive index changes on a single nanoparticle, dimers are shown to be able to detect target protein even in the presence of high levels of nonspecific binding in complex media such as serum.
