Detection of single nanoscale objects is highly desirable for applications in various fields, such as in early-stage diagnosis of human diseases and in environmental monitoring. High-Q microcavities, which can significantly enhance light-matter interactions, provide ideal platforms for label-free, ultrasensitive detection of single nano-objects. In this talk, we report the experimental demonstration of single nanoparticle detection using either resonance mode broadening or microcavity Raman laser splitting. For the latter, by monitoring the step changes in beat frequency of the two split Raman mode lasing, detection of single 20-nm-radius nanoparticles is realized in an aqueous environment. Since Raman scattering occurs in most materials under practically any pump wavelength, this split-mode Raman laser provides a more practical sensing platform.
