A PhD researcher at chemistry department, materials centre- University College London. I have been working on trace concentrations detection of forensic samples, including explosives, drugs and fire debris. My current interests are development of sensitive detection methods based on nanostructure materials especially plasmonic and semiconductors that have unique photonics features. Nano-scale of noble-metals and semiconductors are successfully used and still under hot research in the field for detection purposes based on surface enhanced Raman scattering and similar technique, where Raman data for targets analyte might enhanced strongly suing such materials, leading to improve the detection sensitivity.


Surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy SERS is a powerful technique for highly sensitive and selective detection and identification of trace levels of a wide range of important molecules. Strong SERS enhancement even for low... [ view full abstract ]
