Title: Frequency Resolved Nanoscale Chemical Imaging of 4,4'-Dimercaptostilbene on Silver

Non-resonant tip-enhanced Raman images of 4,4'-dimercaptostilbene on silver reveal that different vibrational resonances of the reporter are selectively enhanced at different sites on the metal substrate. Sequentially recorded images track molecular diffusion within the diffraction-limited laser spot which illuminates the substrate. In effect, the recorded time resolved (Δt = 10 s) pixelated images (25 nm x 8 cm-1) broadcast molecule-local field interactions which take place on much finer scales.
