Based on a dynamical energy-transfer theory for the molecular decay rate near a rough metallic surface, a new resonance structure is predicted which is mediated by the roughness and which is absent in the static image theory. The implication of this new resonance structure to other phenomena, such as electron-energy-loss spectrum and cross coupling in thin films, is pointed out.
