Abstract

This work is devoted to the investigation of the enhancement of Raman signals of nonadsorbed gases in the vicinity of corrugated metallic surfaces supporting propagating surface plasmon-polaritons (PSPPs). Simulation of the PSPP excitation efficiency on holographic gratings coated with silver films of various thicknesses at different groove heights was carried out. Verification showed good agreement between theory and experiment. Also, it was found that an increase of the PSPP excitation efficiency may not lead to an increase in the enhancement factor of Raman signals of gases located near the surface-enhanced Raman scattering active surface. For a holographic grating with a period of 667 nm, a groove height of 70 nm, and a silver film thickness of 30 nm coated with a protective ${{\rm Al}_2}{{\rm O}_3}$ layer, the enhancement factor of Raman signals of nonadsorbed nitrogen molecules was $\sim{{\rm 4\cdot10}^3}$.
