The influence of polarization on the plasmon modes excited in tip-enhanced near-field optical microscopy have been investigated using the Finite Difference Time Domain Method. Analysis of the calculated results have laid particular emphasis on the ability to align local field enhancements with the orientation of molecules in order to optimize Raman signals, with particular relevance to recent experimental work on carbon nanotubes.
