Paper Abstract

An optical chemical bench is a nanostructured integrated optics structure--usually a waveguide circuit--where chemistry and spectroscopy can be combined for the purpose of studying chemical reactivity in thin films and at interfaces. In this paper, we describe how glass waveguide surfaces can be decorated with Rayleigh-limit (sub-20 nm dia.) silver and gold colloid particles by covalent bonding to an organothiolate adhesion layer attached to the glass. The step-by-step assembly of the heterostructure is monitored by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
