FIGURE 1. Schematic principle of waveguide-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (WERS). The excitation laser propagates in a waveguide; the evanescent field of the waveguide mode excites the analyte present at the surface of the chip. Some of the generated Raman signal is collected by the waveguide and guided to the spectrometer for detection.
