Tip-Enhanced Raman Scattering

  • Norihiko HayazawaEmail author


TERS is the combination of scanning probe microscope (SPM) and optical spectroscopy in which the spatial resolution is as high as the one attainable by SPM while the chemical sensitivity is as high as the one in optical spectroscopy.
