Difficult to understand[edit]

Can someone explain this in more simple terms?

I would appreciate more visual aids to elaborate on both the electromagnetic explanation (physical explanation) and charge-transfer complex (chemical explanation). I barely understand what charge-transfer complex means, but I have no idea how that links to SERS — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:01, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

General Feedback[edit]

As noted above the article is fairly solid. I think it would benefit from a few improvements, if there is anyone out there up to the challenge:

  1. Practical applications: the little bit on DNA and gold nanoparticles was worth waiting for - I'm just glad I made it that far! Whew!
  2. Clean up for style: things like "This initial publication has been cited over 2400 times" don't impress me. I understand the importance of a good impact factor, but that just sounds like "mine is bigger than yours"!
