  • Plasmonic tunnel junctions for single-molecule redox chemistry 

    de Nijs, Bart; Benz, F; Barrow, SJ; Sigle, DO; Chikkaraddy, Rohit; Palma, A; Carnegie, Cloudy et al.
    Nanoparticles attached just above a flat metallic surface can trap optical fields in the nanoscale gap. This enables local spectroscopy of a few molecules within each coupled plasmonic hotspot, with near thousand-fold ...
  • Molecules in the mirror: how SERS backgrounds arise from the quantum method of images 

    Baumberg, Jeremy John; Barnett, Stephen; Harris, Nadine (RSC Publishing, 2014-02-20)
    The Raman coupling of light to molecular vibrations is strongly modified when they are placed near a plasmonic metal surface, with the appearance of a strong broad continuum background in addition to the normal surface-enhanced ...
