The near-field interaction of plasmonic nanostructures and chiral molecules induces circular dichroism in achiral nanostructure. The induced circular dichroism (ICD) strength is several orders greater than the molecular inherent CD (MCD), and it generally appears at visual range (VR) where the CD signal is easily detectable. Therefore, the ICD is considered as a potential method to detect single molecular chirality. In this study, cross shaped nanohole (CSN) is proposed for enhancing the MCD signal. The maximum enhancement of the structure reached 450 folds of molecular inherent MCD. Through analysis of the surface plasmon resonance mode, it is found that overlapping of the electric dipole (ED) and magnetic dipole (MD) surface plasmon resonance (SPR) in CSN is essential for the CD enhancement. Furthermore, we investigated the effects of the thickness of structure, length of longer and shorter arms of nanohole, the displacement of shorter arm of the nanohole and x period of CSN on the circular dichroism enhancement, and found the enhancement factor and location of CD enhancement peak to be tunable by the structural parameters
