  The FT-IR, FT-Raman and SERS spectra of L-phenylalanine on Klarite® substrates from Renishaw Diagnostics were studied. The molecular geometry and wavenumbers have been calculated theoretically. The presence of in-plane and out-of-plane modes of the phenyl ring in the SERS spectra suggest a tilted orientation of the molecule with respect to the metal surface. The presence of NH2, CH2 and COOH group vibrations in the SERS spectra show the interaction between these groups and the metal surface. The first hyperpolarizability, predicted infrared intensities and Raman activities are reported. The calculated first hyperpolarizability value suggests that the title compound is an attractive object for future studies of nonlinear optics.
