Abstract

We investigate surface enhanced infrared absorption (SEIRA) spectroscopy with gold strip gratings made by standard optical lithography. By exciting surface plasmon polaritons on both air-gold and gold-substrate interfaces, the resonance of the 1D gratings is linearly tunable with the grating period. With the field enhancement at the edge of the gold strips, a SEIRA enhancement factor more than 6000 for PMMA molecules is achieved. The strong SEIRA enhancement together with the easy fabrication makes the gold strip grating a promising candidate for SEIRA experiments.
