We report new 3D hybrid plasmonic nanostructures exhibiting highly sensitive SERS-based sensing performance,
utilizing efficient plasmonic light absorption and analyte-enrichment effect. The hybrid plasmonic nanostructures
composed of 3D-stacked Ag NWs and NPs separated by a thin hydrophobic dielectric interlayer. A hydrophobic
polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) interlayer provides dielectric nanogap between Ag NWs and NPs, and analyte-enrichment
effect due to the inhibition of drop spreading. The 3D hybrid PDMS-interlayered Ag nanostructures showed
hydrophobicity with initial contact angle of 137.6°. Utilizing the analyte-enrichment strategy, the PDMS-interlayered Ag
nanostructures exhibited an enhanced sensitivity of methylene blue molecules by a factor of 10 (limit of detection, LOD
of 1.5 nM), compared to the alumina-separated 3D hybrid Ag nanostructures.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
