Abstract

Mapping the transition of Ag nanotriangle to nanohole arrays revealed that the optimal SERS response was obtained near the transition. Correlated AFM and Raman imaging provided novel experimental proof that hot spots are located on Ag islands for nanotriangle arrays and in the core area of the hole for nanohole arrays, which is in agreement with previous theoretical predictions.
