Abstract
We numerically investigate the optical properties of the multilayer SERS structures. It includes the substrate layer, the adhesion layer and the composite layer which is consisting of the metallic nanoparticles embedding in the host metallic or dielectric layer. Under the quasi-static approximation, the effective dielectric constant of the composite layer is explored. Its enhanced electric field and the wave prorogating properties are fully explored with the aid of the Fresnel's equations. Our numerical results illustrate that the volume fraction of the metallic nanoparticles and the dielectric properties of the host medium can greatly affect the optical propagating properties (absorbance and the reflectance). Moreover, enhanced local electromagnetic field can be obtained with the metallic (gold) host medium other than the dielectric (TiO2). Thus, our multilayer SERS substrate with excellent controllable enhanced local electric filed endorsed us another degree to engineer the optical transmission. It is a promising candidate in the SERS biosensors applications
