Surface-enhanced and resonant Raman scattering are widely used techniques to enhance the Raman intensity by several orders of magnitude. SERS uses plasmonic near-fields to enhance the Raman scattering process, whereas electronic transitions are the origin of the enhancement in resonant Raman scattering. Typical Raman reporters in SERS are molecules; in SERS experiments, the intrinsic resonance of the molecules is often ignored. We present a wavelength dependent Raman study of sexithiophenes encapsulated in carbon nanotubes. To distinguish between the intrinsic resonance and plasmonic enhancement we investigate different tube bundles with and without plasmonic near field. The filled nanotubes are placed precisely in a gold dimer gap by dielectrophoretic deposition. Polarization dependent Raman measurements confirmed the alignment of the molecules within the nanotubes and the influence of the plasmonic near-field. By tuning the excitation wavelength, we were able to determine the intrinsic molecular resonance and observed a strong redshift towards the plasmon resonance of maximum Raman intensity under plasmonic enhancement.
