【摘要】

Photon signal enhancement by surface plasmon coupling becomes an important issue in super-resolution microscopy and high resolution spectroscopy, such as scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) induced luminescence , surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy, tip enhanced Raman spectroscopy , and so on. This enhancement is varied significantly by the modification of the plasmonic nanocavities. Among these nanocavities, low temperature STM has the most impressive enhanced factor since it can allow us to achieve less than 1nm tip-sample gap stably. This gap-mode plasmonic nanocavity between an STM tip and surface realizes sub-molecular photon spectroscopy . A few works demonstrated that diverse optical transitions can be detected only at atomic scale when they matche a certain resonant mode of the plasmonic nanocavity, which can be modified by tip indentation  and showed theoretically that changing the tip aperture causes the resonant peak position variation and the tip apex curvature mainly influences on the luminescence intensity . However, the tip shape dependence of the plasmonic nanocavity remains unclear. In this work, we experimentally present the role of tip shape in surface plasmonic light emission. We have used Ag tips and a Ag(100) substrate, and photon signals have been measured from the different side of the STM tip simultaneously. We dipped STM tips into the substrate with controlling the dipping depth and the lifting speed in order to change the tip shape, and then, the tip shape subsequently was checked through STM profiles. And also, by dropping the small amount of silver atoms from the tip, we examined the dependence of the very apex change. We found that changing small parts of the tip (<3nm tip direction) can differ the photon spectrum significantly and the tendency well agrees with the theoretical model [3]. Furthermore, the plasmonic photon emission from different direction from a STM tip could be quite different due to tip shape asymmetry. This finding can help us to tune the plasmonic photon emission spectra more efficiently and reveal a new experiment idea by using the asymmetric STM tip.
