- Enhanced fluorescent immunoassays on silver fractal-like structuresTanya Shtoyko
Department of Chemistry, The University of Texas at Tyler, 3900 University Boulevard, Tyler, Texas 75799, USA
Anal Chem 80:1962-6. 2008..We thus demonstrate that such fractal-like structures can assist in improving the signals from assays used in medical diagnostics, especially those for analytes with molecular weight under 100 kDa...
- Preparation of plasmonic platforms of silver wires on gold mirrors and their application to surface enhanced fluorescenceTanya Shtoyko
Department of Chemistry, The University of Texas at Tyler, 3900 University Boulevard, Tyler, Texas 75799, United States
ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 6:18780-7. 2014..The lifetime of Me-ADOTA · Cl dye was significantly reduced (∼ 4 times) in the presence of SWs. Moreover, fluorescence enhancement and lifetime did not show any dependence on the excitation light polarization...
- Fluorescence amplification by electrochemically deposited silver nanowires with fractal architectureEwa M Goldys
Macquarie University Biotechnology Research Institute, North Ryde 2109 NSW Australia
J Am Chem Soc 129:12117-22. 2007..Thus the amplification is attributed to a combination of extended structure area and strong plasmonic coupling between nanowires which also help to radiatively scatter the fluorescence emission...
