We here emphasize that the surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) intensity has to be optimized by choosing the appropriate gold nanoparticles size for two excitation wavelengths; 632.8 and 785 nm. We discuss the role of the position and of the order of the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) in such optimization for both wavelengths. At 632.8 nm, the best SERS intensity is reached for a LSPR located between the excitation and Raman wavelengths whereas at 785 nm, the LSPR should be placed outside this range. The third order of LSPR is shown to have no influence on the SERS intensity.

    The acoustic vibrational properties of nanoscale objects can be dramatically affected when their size is a few nanometers or less. If the medium surrounding a nanoparticle has a sufficiently different density, the vibrations within the nanoparticle can be confined. This results in the appearance...

    The authors report on the observation of cavity resonances along finite gold nanoparticle chains which, unlike continuous gold nanowires, lead to a high field concentration at their extremity. The mode signature has been assessed by probing the local field bound to the metal with two-photon...
