Electric Field Assisted Surface Plasmon-Coupled Directional Emission: An Active Strategy on Enhancing Sensitivity for DNA Sensing and Efficient Discrimination of Single Base Mutation
- 化学化工－已发表论文 
We have demonstrated the proof-of-principle of electric field assisted surface plasmon-coupled directional emission (E-SPCDE). The combination of SPCDE and electric field control produced a significant synergistic effect to amplify the right signal and suppress the wrong signal intelligently in an active strategy. A novel hairpin structured DNA biosensor based on the quenching and enhancing of fluorescence in SPCDE has been designed. With modulation of the fluorescence coupling efficiency, a high discrimination ratio up to more than 20-fold has been achieved by enhancing the signal of match and suppressing that of mismatch. E-SPCDE has shown a successful application in DNA sensing, eliminating false positives and false negatives in the detection. E-SPCDE should provide an opportunity to create a new generation of miniaturized high-performance sensing platforms especially in chip-based microarrays and to make the manipulation of the nanometer-scale processes more accessible and detectable.
