Surface-enhanced Raman scattering from C[sub 60] deposited on ordered arrays of silver- and gold-coated silica spheres have been measured. Selective enhancement of the Raman-active modes was exhibited in backscattering at surface plasmon resonance conditions. The advantage of signal enhancement at excited (scattered) wavelengths for subwavelength surface plasmons was demonstrated for this photosensitive molecular solid. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    We have observed time delay of several nanoseconds of the stimulated Raman scattering from 80-μm-diam CCl4 droplets. The same time delay is observed in the laser-induced breakdown of the droplets. No time delay is observed for the stimulated Raman scattering and the laser-induced breakdown of...

    We examined the Raman spectra of nanostructured carbon films grown using the ammonia-containing feed gas at two excitation wavelengths, 514.5 and 1064 nm. The increase of the ammonia concentration in the feed gas resulted in two prominent changes: the complete morphology change (from...
