R. A. Alvarez-Puebla, L. M. Liz-Marzán et al. describe a new type of spiked gold nanoparticle where the size of the core is gradually increased, so that antenna effects contribute to large SERS enhancement factors when engineered into thin films. This is demonstrated on p. 2561 ff. through ultrasensitive analysis of benzenethiol.
