Abstract

An image field theory of surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy is used to study the dependence of Raman intensities on light frequency, nature of the adsorbate and metal, electrode potential, scattering angle and light polarization. Although the image field enhancement (IFE) theory is at best a crude approximation to the true enhancement mechanism, we do find quite reasonable agreement between the IFE predictions and most existing experimental results.
