Polarized Raman scattering measurement was carried out using a hybridized system of Ag nanodimer structures and organic dye molecules. Tuning of the localized surface plasmon resonance energy leads to modulation of the hybridized polariton energy. The anticrossing behavior of the polariton energy implies a strong coupling regime with maximum Rabi splitting energy of 0.39 eV. The observation proves the effective Raman enhancement via the excitation of the upper and the lower branches of the hybridized states at the gap of the metal dimer. Maximum Raman enhancement was obtained at an optimized resonant energy between the hybrid states and Raman excitation.
