What you need to know: Raman spectroscopy can be enhanced to be more sensitive in detecting chemicals through the use of nanoparticles with sharper edges and cavities. Silver nanoparticle “flowers” developed at Laurier show the most promising results for the optimal enhancement of this diagnostic testing.


This summary is part of a project between the Knowledge Mobilization Unit and Scholars Commons at Wilfrid Laurier University, and the Knowledge Mobilization Unit at York University. Laurier promotes the use of knowledge mobilization to maximize the impact of Laurier research on professional practice, public policy, and community engagement.
