Surface plasmon dependence on surface area to volume ratio

  1. Oct 23, 2014 #1
    Hey everyone,
    I was recently reading a paper on surface enhanced Raman scattering, and it mentioned that plasmons (and for that matter surface plasmon polaritons-where my interest lies) are sensitive to the surface to volume ratio of the structure. I can begin to understand intuitively with skin depth and all but I would like a more rigorous explanation. So if anyone has any idea of where to look/read that would be helpful. I'm about to delve back in Ashcroft to see if I can dig anything up.
