Electrochemical control of strong coupling states between localized surface plasmons and molecule excitons for Raman enhancement
The intensity of Raman scattering from dye molecules strongly coupled with localized surface plasmons of metal nanostructures was controlled by the electrochemical potential. Through in situ electrochemical extinction and surface-enhanced Raman scattering measurements, it is found that the redox state of the molecules affects the coupling strength, leading to the change in the intensity of the Raman scattering. Analysis of the Raman spectrum provides information on the molecules in strong coupling states showing effective enhancement of Raman scattering.
