Influential nanorods: Polarization-dependent enhanced Raman spectra of non-resonant adenine molecules are obtained using single gold nanorods and a parabolic mirror-assisted optical microscope with higher-order laser beams. The influence of the three-dimensional orientation of individual gold nanorods on the Raman enhancement and the nanorod excitation are discussed.
