Van Duyne details

Professor Van Duyne discovered surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), invented
nanosphere lithography (NSL), and developed ultrasensitive nanosensors based on localized
surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) spectroscopy. His research interests include all forms of
surface-enhanced spectroscopy, plasmonics, nanoscale biosensors, atomic layer deposition (ALD),
atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), ultra-high vacuum
(UHV) STM, UHV-tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (UHV-TERS), and surface-enhanced
femtosecond stimulated Raman spectroscopy (SE-FSRS).
He has been recognized for his accomplishments with election to the American Institute
for Medical and Biological Engineering (2016), the Theophilus Redwood Award, Royal Society
of Chemistry (2015), E. Bright Wilson Award in Spectroscopy, American Chemical Society
(2014); Thomson Reuters List of Highly Cited Researchers (2014); Charles Mann Award in
