Oxidation effects on the SERS response of silver nanoprism arrays

I graduated and achieved my Ph.D. at the University of Padova, where I carried out a theoretical structure-to-property investigation of the nonlinear optical properties of charge transfer molecules. Afterwards, as a postdoc at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven,  I studied charge/energy transfer processes in multi-chromophoric molecules, by means of femtosecond transient absorption and time resolved fluorescence. Lately, at the Padova University, I have focused on the characterization of SERS substrates in view of their application as sensors for chemical species. Another recent research field explored is the computational investigation of the excited state polarizability of squaraine dyes.


Silver nanostructures are widely employed for Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) characterizations owing to their excellent properties of field confinement in plasmonic resonances. However, the strong tendency to... [ view full abstract ]
