Title: Vibrational Coupling

Abstract

By homing in on the distribution patterns of electrons around an atom, a team of scientists with Berkeley Lab's Molecular Foundry showed how certain vibrations from benzenethiol cause electrical charge to "slosh" onto a gold surface (left), while others do not (right). The vibrations that cause this "sloshing" behavior yield a stronger SERS signal.
