Invited talk at SPP6 conference Ottawa
Deep's abstract on Plasmonic nanoantennas for enhanced single molecule analysis at micromolar conentrations has just been promoted for invited talk presentation at the 6th International Conference on Surface Plasmon Photonics SPP6.
As a teaser, our main claims are:
- fluorescence enhancement up to 1100-fold AND fluorescence brightness per molecule up to 400kHz (detected)
- detection volume measured down to 58 zeptoliters, four orders of magnitude below the diffraction limit
- true single molecule detection above 20 µM concentration actually measured
- our dedicated design is fully compatible with detection of single fluorescent molecules in solution and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy
