Abstract

For the first time, tip enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS) blinking measurements are used to identify the individual isotopes of non-Raman resonant polystyrene in a miscible, binary blend. This demonstrates the sensitivity and selectivity required for nanoscale chemical imaging and broadens the types of surface components potentially identifiable with TERS.
