Abstract

Surface lattice resonances (SLRs) emerging in regular arrays of plasmonic nanoparticles (NPs) are known to be exceptionally sensitive to the homogeneity of the environment. It is considered necessary to have a homogeneous environment for engineering narrowband SLRs, while in a half-space environment, SLRs rapidly vanish as the contrast between the refractive indices of the substrate and superstrate increases. From this conventional wisdom, it is apparent that the delicate lattice Kerker effect emerging from SLRs and resonances on constituent NPs should be difficult to achieve in a non-homogeneous environment. Using a rigorous theoretical treatment with multipolar decomposition, we surprisingly find and explain a narrowband substrate-mediated lattice Kerker effect in two-dimensional arrays of Al nanocylinders in a half-space geometry. We propose to use this effect for sensing applications and demonstrate its broad tunability across the UV/Vis wavelength range.
