Spectroscopy Applications

Illustration of the SERRS technique

Surface-enhanced resonance Raman scattering is a technique that offers unparalleled sensitivity and specificity in non-destructive spectroscopic detection. It is a combination of surface-enhanced Raman scattering and resonance Raman spectroscopy.
