We suggest optical modulation of the dielectric function of a molecular monolayer adsorbed on a metal surface as a potential means of controlling plasmon resonance phenomena. The dielectric function is altered using a laser pulse of moderate intensity and linear polarization to align the constituent molecules. After the pulse, the monolayer returns to its initial state. Time-dependent, optically controlled dielectric function is illustrated by molecular dynamics calculations. (Figure Presented).
