Abstract
Due to the effect of plasmonic coupling, gold nanoparticle dimers have been paid more attentions in bio-imaging. The coupling effect existing at the gap between a closely linked particle pair can make the local field strongly enhanced and in which the angle between the excitation polarization and the dimer axis plays a dominant role. We calculated the amplitude distribution under a highly focused illumination objective. The simulation results show that for such a model, 45 degrees between the excitation polarization and the dimer axis can produce an optimum signal. The enhancement thus obtained is ~10.78 fold while the variation between peak-peak can reach 6.59 fold compared to a single plasmoic particle during the rotation of the polarization.
