Metal-Enhanced Fluorescence by Chris D. Geddes

By Chris D. Geddes

Discover how metal-enhanced fluorescence is altering conventional recommendations of fluorescence

This publication collects and analyzes the entire present developments, reviews, and rising sizzling themes within the box of metal-enhanced fluorescence (MEF). Readers find out how this rising expertise complements the application of present fluorescence-based techniques. for instance, MEF can be utilized to higher realize and tune particular molecules that could be found in very low amounts in both medical samples or organic platforms. writer Chris Geddes, a famous pioneer within the box, not just explains the basics of metal-enhanced fluorescence, but in addition the importance of the entire latest findings and types within the field.

Metal-enhanced fluorescence refers back to the use of steel colloids and nanoscale metal debris in fluorescence platforms. It deals researchers the chance to change the fundamental homes of fluorophores in either close to- and far-field fluorescence codecs. merits of metal-enhanced fluorescence in comparison to conventional fluorescence include:

  • Increased potency of fluorescence emission

  • Increased detection sensitivity

  • Protect opposed to fluorophore photobleaching

  • Applicability to nearly any molecule, together with either intrinsic and extrinsic chromophores

Following a dialogue of the foundations and basics, the writer examines the method and purposes of metal-enhanced fluorescence. in the course of the publication, references result in the first literature, facilitating in-depth investigations into specific topics.

Guiding readers from the fundamentals to state-of-the-technology purposes, this publication is suggested for all chemists, physicists, and biomedical engineers operating within the box of fluorescence.

G. 1 INTRODUCTION In this chapter, we provide a tutorial review of an often-overlooked aspect of Metal Enhanced Fluorescence (MEF), namely the modification of the spectral profile of emission [1]. Decay rates (radiative and total) of a fluorophore are strongly modified in MEF conditions, as a result of electromagnetic (EM) coupling to localized surface plasmon (LSP) resonances in the metallic substrate [2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12].
