Tailoring plasmonic substrates for surface enhanced spectroscopies

Abstract

Our understanding of how the geometry of metallic nanostructures controls the properties of their surface plasmons, based on plasmon hybridization, is useful for developing high-performance substrates for surface enhanced spectroscopies. In this tutorial review, we outline the design of metallic nanostructures tailored specifically for providing electromagnetic enhancements for surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). The concepts developed for nanoshell-based substrates can be generalized to other nanoparticle geometries and scaled to other spectroscopies, such as surface enhanced infrared absorption spectroscopy (SEIRA).
