Plasmon-vibration coupling in field-enhanced spectroscopy

We study theoretically the effect of the coupling between surface plasmons and infrared vibrations in two different spectroscopic techniques. In infrared absorption, the coupling produces enhanced signal and Fano-like spectral lineshapes. In Raman spectroscopy, the coupling with nanoparticle acoustic vibrations produces new selection rules.
