Abstract

We report on two-photon photoluminescence (TPL) spectroscopy on metal dimers made of two gold nanoparticles separated by subwavelength distances. A direct comparison with far-field scattering measurements shows that TPL provides additional data on the structure modes of major importance for their use in surface-enhanced Raman scattering, enhanced fluorescence, and sensing.
