Remote surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) imaging of an adsorbed monolayer was demonstrated through a nanostructured array of conical tips inscribed onto the distal face of a 30 cm optical fiber bundle. Despite intense Raman signal from the germanium oxide doped fibers, the Raman signal of an adsorbed monolayer of a reference compound (benzene thiol) was detected in the fingerprint region. This opens up the possibility of local remote imaging through an optical fiber that embeds a SERS active platform.
