Multi-wavelength SERS measurements on dyes molecules adsorbed on gold evaporated nanoparticles substrates are presented. The spectra are correlated with the Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) profile of the nanostructured substrate before and after the adsorption process. The enhancement of the typical vibrational modes of the methylene blue is investigated for the different excitation wavelengths and we show that its behavior follows properly the LSPR profile of nanoparticles "dressed" with the dye molecules.
