In order to produce the most effective Ag nanoarrays for plasmon enhanced fluorescence and Raman scattering made using ferroelectric substrates, the optimum conditions for the creation of arrays must be identified. We study here Ag nanopattern arrays formed using ferroelectric lithography based on periodically proton exchanged (PPE) template methods. We examine different conditions in regard to deposition of Ag nanoparticles and analyze the plasmon enhanced signal from the resulting nanoarray. We apply FLIM (fluorescence lifetime imaging) to assess different Ag nanoarray preparation conditions on fluorescence emission from selected fluorphores. In addition, we apply Raman and luminescence spectroscopy with AFM (atomic force microscopy) to study the plasmon enhancement of luminescence and Raman from the Ag nanoarrays.
