We study theoretically the role of surface plasmons in optical nanoantennas to enhance nanoscale local fields. The activation of localized surface plasmon polaritons allows for performing very effective field‐enhanced vibrational spectroscopy such as in Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) and in Surface Enhanced Infrared Absorption (SEIRA). We also analyze the influence of plasmons when they couple to elastic vibrations of small metallic particles. Finally, we study how localized plasmons can be excited also by fast electron beams, producing plasmonic forces that might induce nanoparticle motion.
