Abstract

Three-dimensional metallodielectric photonic crystals were created by fabricating a micron-scale polymeric template using multi-photon direct laser writing (DLW) in SU-8 and conformally and selectively coating the template with copper (Cu) via nanoparticle-nucleated electroless metallization. This process deposits a uniform metal coating, even deep within a lattice, because it is not directional like sputter-coating or evaporative deposition. Infrared reflectance spectra show that upon metallization the optical behavior transitions fully from a dielectric photonic crystal to that of a metal photonic crystal (MPC). After depositing 50 nm of Cu, the MPCs exhibit a strong plasmonic stop band having reflectance greater than 80% across the measured part of the band and reaching as high as 95% at some wavelengths. Numerical simulations match remarkably well with the experimental data and predict all dominant features observed in the reflectance measurements, showing that the MPCs are structurally well formed. These data show that the Cu-based process can be used to create high performance MPCs and devices that are difficult or impossible to fabricate by other means.

SEM images of SU-8 polymeric “stack-of-logs” PCs before (a-c) and after (d-f) Cu plating. The PCs were designed to have FCT symmetry and unit cell parameters b=a√2=3.54 µm and c=3.60 µm, where a and c/4 are the center-to-center horizontal and vertical log-spacing, respectively. The conventional FCT unit cell is outlined in (b) with a white square of edge length b. a, d) Perspective views of the PCs. b, e) Top views, looking along the <001> axis (normal to substrate). c, f) Side views, looking along the <110> axis (parallel to substrate). g) Energy dispersive x-ray (EDX) spectrum of a Cu-plated PC.

From smallest to largest unit cell, the PCs were designed for overall length, width, and height as 250×250×22.5 µm, 160×160×26.7 µm, and 175×175×33.4 µm. b) Simulated and experimentally measured reflectance for the Cu-MPC having b=5.90 and c=6.0 µm.
