The local field distribution around gold nanosphere-gold plane junction has been studied using the finitedifference time-domain (FDTD) electrodynamics calculation procedure. We find that both the in-plane and out-of-plane polarized excitation produce enhanced field strong enough to explain the observed SERS activities of the junctions. Comparison with a simple dipole-image dipole model shows that the enhanced field primarily originates from the multipole-image multipole interaction, which indicates that the detailed fine-structures of the nanoparticles also play a significant role in the SERS activities as well.
