  • Presents the nanoantenna concept in a transdiciplinary approach for nanomedicine applications, which can be easily understood by researchers from various scientific disciplines
  • Introduces readers to the potential of the enhanced spectroscopy and the nanoantenna in the biomedical field for the development of nanobiosensors
  • Contributions by leading authors in the field written with the student in mind
  • A good balance of theory and experiment


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.
