EPJ TI Review - Tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy


As part of the Thematic Series on Raman Spectroscopies, a new Review Article has just been published providing a detailed overview of the state-of-the-art in Tip-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (TERS). The authors discuss the capabilities of TERS, demonstrated through a summary of the major achievements of TERS techniques across many different fields of scientific research. It focuses on ongoing and potential applications of TERS including those in materials science, chemical science and biological science. Finally, the authors present an outlook on future development of the technique and the mechanisms being investigated to help achieve high signal enhancement and spatial resolution.

The programme committee and authors of the EC-17, 17th Joint Workshop on Electron Cyclotron Emission and Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating, were extremely pleased with the professional yet unbureaucratic and fast on-line publication of their proceedings. We look forward to working with EPJ Web of Conferences again for future meetings.
