Estimating the Analytical and Surface Enhancement Factors in SERS

The surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) capabilities of silver nanoparticles is studied in this experiment by estimating the their analytical enhancement  and surface enhancement factors. Students are introduced to the fundamentals of SERS.
