Absorption, luminescence, and excitation luminescence studies of dye molecules adsorbed onto ultrathin, variable-thickness silver films show strong coupling of the particle plasma resonances to the molecules. Luminescence from the dye is increased by excitation transfer from the silver particles for certain film thickness. Increased luminescence has also been observed from dyes on Au and Cu films.
