Extinction spectra of a hybrid material comprised of molecular layers of polymethine dyes and granulated silver films preliminarily deposited onto sapphire substrates are studied experimentally. Specific features of the dye layer composition and broadening of plasmon absorption bands are discussed. In hybrid samples, both an increase and a decrease in the silver-nanoparticle plasmon resonance frequency upon spreading of dyes have been observed, as well as a considerable increase in the dye molecule absorption. Possible mechanisms of the phenomena are discussed.
