Abstract

The near infrared transmission of corrugated metal films deposited on hetero-colloidal crystals is investigated. The transmission response of the quasi-three-dimensional (quasi-3D) metal film is modified by controlling the nominal thickness of a dielectric layer pre-deposited on the top surface of the colloidal crystal to form a new hetero-colloidal crystal. An extraordinary optical transmission (EOT) phenomenon could be presented in such metallodielectric (MD) architectures. We have found that the main transmission peak is suppressed as the thickness of the intercalated dielectric layer is increased. We propose that the observed EOT is a result of constructive interference between a localized sphere-like plasmon mode and an index-guided eigen mode mainly confined in the colloidal crystal, which is confirmed by our numerical simulations. Based on the MD microstructures, a distinct plasmon sensitivity response difference is achieved, which indicates potential applications for biochemical sensing.

(a) Fabrication procedure and schematic geometry of the MD microstructures. (b), (c) SEM image (tilted view) of the MD microstructures without and with the intercalated a-SiO2 layer thickness h = 0 or h = 0.28 D, respectively. The white dash circle line indicates the surface of the PS sphere.

Measured (a) and calculated (b) transmission spectra for the pure dielectric hetero-colloidal crystals with different a-SiO2 layer thicknesses from h = 0 to 0.15D, 0.22D, 0.28D, 0.35D. G1 and G2 indicate the two main dips for the pure dielectric microstructures. For clarity, the individual spectra are offset by 10% from one another. (c) Measured (solid line) and calculated (dashed line) wavelength of G1 (solid squares) and G2 (hollow squares) modes for the pure dielectric hetero-colloidal crystals as functions of h. The lines connecting the data points are guides to the eye.

Measured (a) and calculated (b) transmission spectra for the MD microstructures with different SiO2 layer thicknesses from h = 0 to 0.15D, 0.22D, 0.28D, 0.35D. P1 and P2 denote the two obvious peaks of the microstructures. For clarity, the individual spectra are offset by 5% from one another. (c) Measured (solid line) and calculated (dashed line) wavelength of P1 (solid squares) and P2 (hollow squares) modes for the MD microstructures as functions of h. The lines connecting the data points are guides to the eye.

Calculated |E|2 distributions of the pure dielectric hetero-colloidal crystals with G1 (a-c) and G2 (d-f) modes and the MD microstructures at the resonance P1 (g-i) and P2 (j-l) modes for h from 0 to 0.22D and 0.35D, respectively. The right column shows the SEM images of the corresponding MD microstructures.

Measured transmission spectra for the MD microstructures immersed in different environment media: air (black line, n = 1.0), ethanol gas (green line, n = 1.22), ethanol liquid (red line, n = 1.36), and iso-Propyl alcohol liquid (blue line, n = 1.38) with h = 0 (a) and h = 0.28D (b). (c) Plot of the main peaks shifts versus refractive index of the P2 (red circles) andP1 (black squares) of h = 0.28D, and P1 (green triangles) of h = 0.
