This thesis is focused on investigation of label-free detection of single molecules and proteins. We use high-speed optoplasmoinc method to detect diffusing single particles and molecules. We provide a measurement of the optoplasmonic bio-detection as an assay to probe the response of plasmonic nanostructures by changes in their dielectric environment. We also record dark-field scattering bursts of individual gold nanorods, freely diffusing in water suspension. We have performed the measurement and analysis with high enough statistics.
