Abstract
This paper reports the experimental results on using Langmuir—Blodgett (LB) films as spacer layers between molecules and metal surface to study electromagnetic enhancement mechanisms of Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS), and to measure the change of SERS intensity with spacer layer thickness. In pyridine + KCL/LB films/Ag films configuration, the experimental results indicate SERS effect exists when the spacer layer thickness is 5 nm, and eventually it becomes unobservable with 15 nm thickness. The experiments supported the idea that the enhancement arises from an electromagnetic mechanism,
