## Laser writing of nanostructured silicon arrays for the SERS detection of biomolecules with inhibited oxidation

The present work reports the processing of laser irradiated Si arrays (LISi) and underlines their surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) functionality. A nanostructured Si/SiOx surface forms providing additional fluidic and photoprotective …

## Nanostructural changes upon substitutional Al doping in ZnO sputtered films

Al:ZnO layers, with low and high Al content, 0.2% and 2.1% cat. respectively, have been prepared using the RF magnetron sputtering technique. Noticeable differences in the optical and electrical properties have been detected in these films. With …

## Lattice damage in 9-MeV-carbon irradiated diamond and its recovery after annealing

We have studied the radiation damage in diamond as a function of layer depth upon self-ion implantation with 9-MeV carbon ions and its recovery after annealing at $1000^\circ$C. Raman and photoluminescence spectra show substantial damage of the …

## Phonon-plasmon coupling in electron surface accumulation layers in InN nanocolumns

Raman measurements in high quality InN nanocolumns display a coupled LO phonon-plasmon mode together with uncoupled phonons. The coupled mode is attributed to the spontaneous accumulation of electrons on the lateral surfaces of the nanocolumns. For …
