Paper Abstract

This paper will give background information on the structure of different influenza viruses and address the remote detection of viral particles using Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS). Also, we will mathematically predict how small to create the silver nanorods, measured by the diameter of the rod, in order for there to be a discernable enhancement in the Raman signal due to quantum properties of the rods. Finally, the future of nanotechnology in optics as it relates to medical applications will be addressed, highlighting a few of the most important possible future applications.
