How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

I currently work at the Soft Condensed Matter Group, Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS and do research in Surface Chemistry, Spectroscopy and Nanotechnology. I was a key member of the research team elaborating high quality SERS platform for fast and reliable analysis. I ran optimization of the SERS substrates parameters and subsequent stages of their manufacturing process. As a leader of the team working on the launch of SERS products on the market, and management professional, I became a cofounder of SERSitive.

Using nanosized metal substrates, surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is a tool for improving the Raman signal of biomolecules. For detection, SERS has gained much popularity and an important role in determining chemical composition. In the present study, SERS spectra of 2-methyl-4-(4-methylpiperazin-1-yl)-10H-thieno[2,3-b][1,5]benzodiazepine...
The majority of analytical chemistry methods requires presence of target molecules directly at a sensing surface. Diffusion of analyte from the bulk towards the sensing layer is random and might be extremely lengthy, especially in case of low concentration of molecules to be detected. Thus, even the most sensitive transducer and the most selective...
We show that surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) coupled with principal component analysis (PCA) can serve as a fast, reliable, and easy method for detection and identification of food-borne bacteria, namely Salmonella spp., Listeria monocytogenes, and Cronobacter spp., in different types of food matrices (salmon, eggs, powdered infant formu...
Multifunctional core/shell type nanomaterials composed of nanocrystalline, lanthanide doped fluorides and gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) were successfully prepared. The products were synthesized to combine luminescence properties of the core NPs, i.e. LnF3/SiO2-NH2 and KLn3F10/SiO2-NH2, and plasmonic activity of the shell Au NPs within a single nanoma...
