Multipolar Raman Scattering on Plasmons

Abstract: Dichroism in Raman has long been an area of interest in spectroscopy as a powerful tool for elucidating molecular chirality. Here, I will provide details from investigations into plasmonic, rather than molecular, dichroism observed in surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) studies. The sample used is the prototypical dimer nantenna, consisting of two gold nanospheres, which is functionalized with bipyridyl ethylene molecular reporters.
