This book concentrates on the various fields related to the development of a nanobiosensor and presents the latest information from renowned experts. It focuses on the enhanced spectroscopy, including SERS, SEIRA/SEIRS, and near-field optics, and the related physical processes (optical properties of metallic nanoparticles, plasmon resonance, field enhancement, etc.). Some applications in the biological and medical field are presented to show the potential of such techniques as sensors if combined with functionalization.

Marc Lamy de la Chapelle received his PhD in science physics in 1998 from the University of Nantes, France, on the study of carbon nanotubes by Raman spectroscopy. After holding post-doctoral positions at the Office National d'Etude et de Recherche en Aéronautique, Paris, and at the physics department of Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, he became associate professor at the Université de technologie de Troyes, France, in 2001. His research activities focus on nanooptics and Raman spectroscopy. He has worked on surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). Currently, he is professor at the Paris 13 University at the Laboratory of Chemistry, Properties and Structure of the Biomaterials and Therapeutics Agents (CSPBAT UMR 7244). His research subject is the application of SERS and TERS to biological problems and, specifically, to the diagnosis of pathologies.
Annemarie Pucci has extensive experience in infrared spectroscopy of surfaces and nanostructures and is internationally known figure in the fields of infrared plasmonics, surface-enhanced infrared spectroscopy, and in situ infrared monitoring of thin layer growth. Prof. Pucci has published more than 150 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters. Currently, she is professor of experimental physics at the Ruprecht-Karls University of Heidelberg, Germany. As member of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, she is strongly involved in the master education on solid-state physics, including surface science.
