Surface-enhanced Raman scattering of amorphous TiO2 thin films by gold nanostructures: Revealing first layer effect with thickness variation

Abstract : In this paper, amorphous titanium dioxide (TiO2) thin films have been deposited on a commercially available Klarite substrate using the sol-gel process to produce surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). The substrate consists of square arrays of micrometer-sized pyramidal pits in silicon with a gold coating. Several thin TiO2 layers have been deposited on the surface to study the influence of film thickness. Ultimately, we obtained information on SERS of an amorphous TiO2 layer by gold nanostructures, whose range is less than a few nanometers. Mechanisms responsible for the enhancement are the product of concomitant chemical and electromagnetic effects with an important contribution from plasmon-induced charge transfer
