Abstract
Photonic crystal fibers with hollow core (HC PCFs) are a specific class of optical fibers characterized by microstructure with periodic holes oriented along fiber. The combination of HC PCF with Raman spectroscopy for biosensors creation is attractive in the terms of the low sample volume, the possibility to increase the integration time without sample degradation and maintaining constant focus during experiments. Here we propose layer-by-layer polyelectrolyte coating of HC PCF inner surface in order to obtain charge-selective absorption of analyte, stabilization of Surface-Enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-active gold nanoparticles. Distance between SERS hotspots and glass reduces nonlinear signals from glass, and increases signal-to-noise ratio of SERS spectra.
