Abstract

Plasmonic resonances in metallic nanoparticles are exploited to create efficient optical filtering functions. A finite element method is used to model metallic nanoparticle gratings. The accuracy of this method is shown by comparing numerical results with measurements on a two-dimensional grating of gold nanocylinders with an elliptic cross section. A parametric analysis is then performed in order to design efficient filters with polarization dependent properties together with high transparency over the visible range. The behavior of nanoparticle gratings is also modeled using the Maxwell–Garnett homogenization theory and analyzed by comparison with the diffraction of a single nanoparticle. The proposed structures are intended to be included in optical systems that could find innovative applications.
