Nanoprobes: Near-Infrared SERS Nanoprobes with Plasmonic Au/Ag Hollow-Shell Assemblies for In Vivo Multiplex Detection (Adv. Funct. Mater. 30/2013)
NIR-sensitive SERS nanoprobes are fabricated by J.-H. Kim, H.-Y. Lee, D. H. Jeong, Y.-S. Lee and co-workers, who form hollow plasmonic Au/Ag shells, assembled on the surface of a silica nanosphere. On page 3719, it is shown that the signals from these NIR SERS nanoprobes are detectable through deep tissues of up to 8 mm, and exhibit the capability for in vivo multiplex detection.
