A low-cost, environment friendly and easily fabricated SERS-active substrate with low background signals has been developed by hydrothermal treatment of titanium thin films deposited on silicon substrate. Results from the experimental study revealed that Rhodamine 6G can be well resolved using gold-coated hydrothermally roughened TiO2 substrates. The effect of surface enhancement by the hydrothermally roughened substrates enables rapid identification of Rhodamine 6G, and the enhancement capability is controllable by tuning the surface roughness of the substrates through varying treatment duration. The hydrothermally treated TiO2 substrates also exhibit tunable wettability like that of the untreated ones.
Journal for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (JNN) is an international and multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal with a wide-ranging coverage, consolidating research activities in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology into a single and unique reference source. JNN is the first cross-disciplinary journal to publish original full research articles, rapid communications of important new scientific and technological findings, timely state-of-the-art reviews with author's photo and short biography, and current research news encompassing the fundamental and applied research in all disciplines of science, engineering and medicine.
