Abstract

There is a great need to be able to measure chemical environments at both the cellular and sub- cellular levels in real time because chemical irregularities in these environments are indicative of many disease states. In this project, a surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) based optical fiber sensor is designed to monitor pH in real time. SERS spectra of reporter molecules adsorbed on the fiber are used to deliver information on the chemical composition of the environment.
