We investigate the coupling of dipole resonances induced in a heteromaterial system composed of a high-refractive-index nanoparticle and a highly reflective substrate. A broad scattering signal and strong electric near-field enhancement in the near-infrared region are generated by a hybrid Si nanoparticle on a gold-film system under oblique illumination. Dark-field microscopy investigations of the scattering signal measurement reveal the resonance shifts of the dipole mode of silicon nanoparticles on gold films. Further, the scattering signal is enhanced for p-polarized illumination in the near-infrared region. The results indicate that the coupling of Si nanoparticles on a gold-film system facilitates a possible application for both surface-enhanced fluorescence and surface-enhanced Raman scattering.
