Multimodal: Gold nanorods are coated with silica/polymer mutilayers, doped with surface-enhance Raman scattering (SERS) and fluorescence agents as well as photosensitizers. The structural and optical properties are tunable and stable in solutions and in living bodies. A real-time and specific in vivo SERS and fluorescence detection method using this structure is applied for tumor detection and subsequent photodynamic therapy (PDT).
