Abstract

We study a compound plasmonic system composed of a periodic Au grating array placed close to a thin Au film. The study is not limited to normal incidence and dispersion diagrams are computed for a broad variety of parameters. In addition to identifying localized and propagating modes and the coupling/hybridization interactions between them, we go further and identify modes of compound nature, i.e. those exhibiting both localized and propagating characteristics, and discuss which plasmon modes can exhibit such a behavior in the system at hand and how structural parameters play a central part in the spectral response of such modes.

Fig. 1

The geometry being studied, a plasmonic system composed of a periodic Au grating layer above a Au film. The structural parameters used in this study are s = 20nm, t = 25nm, l = 50-150nm, w = 15nm, a background of glass with a permittivity of ε = 2.13, and a periodicity of Λ = 200nm.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Absorption spectra and SPP dispersions of the system shown in Fig. 1. (a) Absorption spectra for a particle length of l = 100nm, showing three absorption bands at λ = 550nm, 660nm, and 970nm for θ = 55° incidence that correspond to the odd and even SPP modes of the film and the localized dipole-image mode of the particles, respectively. (b) Calculated dispersion curves for even and odd SPP modes on a plain Au film folded back into the first Brillouin zone (Λ = 200nm periodicity) and matched dispersion curves extracted from panel (a) for even and odd SPP modes of the full grating and film system assuming m = −1 Bragg scattering.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Cross section of the system shown in Fig. 1, with l = 100nm, showing a snapshot of (a) the electric field amplitude (Media 1) and (b) the normalized polarization charge distribution when the field is at a maximum (Media 2). The arrows indicate the orientation of the electric field, while the color scale indicates the amplitude of the field and the distribution of positive (red) and negative (blue) charges. Clearly this is the dipole mode of the particle coupled to its mirror image in the Au film. The media files illustrate how the field and charges vary in time and thus the nature of the resonance. Planewave excitation at θ = 55° incidence and λ = 970nm.

Fig. 4

Cross sections of the system shown in Fig. 1 with l = 100nm, showing (a) (Media 3), (c) (Media 5) time varying electric field amplitude and (b) (Media 4), (d) (Media 6) polarization charges. (a), (b) Odd SPP mode for a θ = 55° incidence planewave excitation, λ = 550nm. (c), (d) Even SPP mode for a θ = 55° incidence planewave excitation, λ = 660nm. The linked media files show the time evolution of the field amplitude and polarization charges.

Fig. 5
Fig. 5

Absorption spectra of the system shown in Fig. 1, as a function of particle length from l = 100-150nm, while keeping the period constant to Λ = 200nm, for θ = 55° incidence. Note the redshifting of the localized dipole-image mode and also that of the even-compound SPP mode with increasing particle length.

Fig. 6
Fig. 6

Cross section of the system shown in Fig. 1 with l = 120nm, showing (a) the time varying electric field amplitude (Media 7) and (b) polarization charges (Media 8) for a θ = 55° incidence planewave excitation and λ = 680nm, corresponding to the even-compound SPP mode. Note, in contrast to the field and charge profiles for l = 100nm (Figs. 4(c)-4(d)), here for l = 120nm, the quadrapolar nature of this mode is much more distinctly visible, due to the elongation in the particle length.

Cross sections of the system shown in Fig. 1 with l = 50nm, showing (a) (Media 9), (c) (Media 11) time varying electric field amplitude and (b) (Media 10), (d) (Media 12) polarization charges via linked movies. Note the compound nature of both resonances for this particle size. (a,b) parallel hybridization combination of the even SPP and localized dipole-image mode for θ = 55° incidence, λ = 610nm. (c,d) anti-parallel hybridization combination of the even SPP and localized dipole-image mode for θ = 55° incidence, λ = 700nm.

(a) Absorption spectra of the system shown in Fig. 1 with a particle length of l = 50nm. Three absorption bands at λ = 550nm, 610nm, and 700nm for θ = 55° incidence correspond to the same odd SPP, even SPP, and localized dipole-image modes shown in Fig. 2 for a length of l = 100nm, however, now the last two bands have hybridized with a decrease in particle length, forming a parallel and anti-parallel combination of the two modes respectively. (b) Absorption spectra as a function of particle length from l = 50-100nm, while keeping the period constant to Λ = 200nm, for θ = 55° incidence. Note similar to Fig. 5, a shifting of the localized dipole-image mode and even-compound SPP with a decrease in particle length. The odd SPP mode, however, maintains the same spectral position.
