Ultraviolet surface-enhanced Raman scattering at the plasmonic band edge of a metallic grating.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Surface-enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) is studied in sub-wavelength metallic gratings on a substrate using a rigorous electromagnetic approach. In the ultraviolet SERS is limited by the metallic dampening, yet enhancements as large as 10(5) are predicted. It is shown that these enhancements are directly linked to the spectral position of the plasmonic band edge of the metal/substrate surface plasmon. A simple methodology is presented for selecting the grating pitch to produce optimal enhancement for a given laser frequency.
