Insights into the nature of plasmon-driven catalytic reactions revealed by HV-TERS

Author affiliations

Abstract

The nature of plasmon-driven chemical reactions is experimentally investigated using high vacuum tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (HV-TERS). It is revealed that the coupling between the tip and the substrate can produce intense plasmon resonance, which then decays to produce sufficient hot electrons and thus catalyses the chemical reaction. The photoelectron emission from the laser illuminated silver substrate alone cannot drive the reaction.
