Abstract

With regard to surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), the preparation of substrates with high homogeneity and low cost remains a challenge. In this paper, cheap commercial DVD-R plates were adopted as supports, whose 3D periodic structure was transferred onto the surface of flexible polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) easily. Then, silver nanoparticles were grown both on DVD and PDMS substrates by the in situ reduction method, and the SERS performances of these two substrates were investigated. The results confirmed that the PDMS-based substrate exhibited better enhancement performance and higher uniformity (${\rm RSD}={4.16}\% $). In addition, due to the flexibility and transparency of PDMS, it is not restricted by the surface shape of the object when applied in in situ detection. This low-cost, simple method will be widely used in the in situ detection of surfaces of objects of any shape.
