Journal Article
Marshall, A. R. L., Stokes, J., Viscomi, F. N., Proctor, J. E., Gierschner, J., Bouillard, J. G., & Adawi, A. M. (2017). Determining molecular orientation via single molecule SERS in a plasmonic nano-gap. Nanoscale, 9(44), 17415-17421. https://doi.org/10.1039/C7NR05107G

In this work, plasmonic nano-gaps consisting of a silver nanoparticle coupled to an extended silver film have been fully optimized for single molecule Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) spectroscopy. The SERS signal was found to be strongly dep... Read More about Determining molecular orientation via single molecule SERS in a plasmonic nano-gap.

Fluorescent emission enhancement by aluminium nanoantenna arrays in the near UV (2016)
Journal Article
Dorh, N., Sarua, A., Stokes, J., Hueting, N. A., & Cryan, M. J. (2016). Fluorescent emission enhancement by aluminium nanoantenna arrays in the near UV. Journal of Optics, 18(7), 075008. doi:10.1088/2040-8978/18/7/075008

In this paper, we demonstrate fluorescence enhancement of a laser dye, using aluminium nanoantenna arrays designed for the near UV range. A series of nanorod arrays were fabricated by focused ion beam milling then spin-coated with a dye with an intri...

Polarization and mutual coupling effects in aluminum nanoantenna arrays (2015)
Journal Article
Dorh, N., Stokes, J., & Cryan, M. J. (2015). Polarization and mutual coupling effects in aluminum nanoantenna arrays. Journal of the Optical Society of America B, 32(4), 721-729. doi:10.1364/JOSAB.32.000721

This paper uses finite-difference time-domain modeling to study the impact of varying the polarization of the point source(s) on both a single aluminum dipole nanoantenna and a 2×2 array. Starting with the single dipole nanoantenna, this paper demons... Read More about Polarization and mutual coupling effects in aluminum nanoantenna arrays.
