Knowing that TERS is a tricky experimental method, which conditions may vary from one sample to another, we present the special test sample for TERS.
TERS_S is made of organic molecules on an Au substrate. This sample was specially prepared in collaboration between ScanSens techologist and AFM-Raman engineers. Engineers from NT-MDT SI have approved that combining our AFM TERS cantilevers and the sample TERS_S the one can with high probability** get Raman enhancement working in appropriate experimental conditions. For many years they use similar test structure for TERS demonstrations in different labs.
Such sample can be used for practical studies of TERS metodology and preparing for further experiments on samples targeted.
