Figure 4

Binding of the analyte molecules to the receptors on a functionalized gold nanorod, shown in (A), shifts its plasmon resonance along the longitudinal direction. (B) Binding of streptavidin-R-phycoerythrin to a biotin-functionalized nanorod is monitored using photothermal microscopy. Adapted from Zijlstra et al. [108].
