Single molecule signatures from tip-enhanced Raman scattering

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) have developed a novel method to simulate tip-enhanced Raman scattering (TERS) from first principles, enabling sub-nanometer scale visualizations of single molecule vibrations. They demonstrate that TERS spectra images of adsorbed molecules on a substrate can be significantly influenced by chemical effects stemming from the surface, an aspect commonly neglected in prior simulations.
