The angle resolved surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) on two-dimensional Ag hole arrays has been studied as a function of hole size. The Raman enhancement factor has been found to increase with increasing hole size. In particular, by correlating the Raman mappings with the dispersion relations, the enhancement has been attributed to fast surface plasmon polariton radiative decay rate and strong coupling efficiency. Our results indicate that it is possible to optimize the geometry of the arrays to obtain desirable SERS.

    This paper obtains the topological 1-soliton solution of the nonlinear Schrödinger’s equation, in a non-Kerr law media, with fourth order dispersion. An exact 1-soliton solution is obtained. The types of nonlinearity that are studied in this paper are Kerr law and power law.

    The long-standing puzzle in the parameters of the f0(500), as well as the f0(980), is finally being settled [1] thanks to precise dispersive analyses carried out during the last years. Here we report on our very recent dispersive data analysis which allowed for a precise and model independent...

    The quantum yield for fluorescence can be defined as the ratio of the amount of light scattered as fluorescence or as Rayleigh or Raman scattering to the amount of light removed from an incident beam. Clearly then the quantum yield should go to one for a nonresonant excitation. The conventional...

    We have studied phonon modes in GaN/AlN multiple quantum disk nanocolumns, which are self-organized on Al2O3 and Si substrates by RF-MBE, by means of Raman scattering. The Raman spectrum drastically changes with increasing thickness of the GaN quantum disk. We find the confined, quasi-confined...
