Abstract

Multi-spectral imaging systems typically require the cumbersome integration of disparate filtering materials in order to work simultaneously in multiple spectral regions. We show for the first time how a single nano-patterned metal film can be used to filter multi-spectral content from the visible, near infrared and terahertz bands by hybridizing plasmonics and metamaterials. Plasmonic structures are well-suited to the visible band owing to the resonant dielectric properties of metals, whereas metamaterials are preferable at terahertz frequencies where metal conductivity is high. We present the simulated and experimental characteristics of our new hybrid synthetic multi-spectral material filters and demonstrate the independence of the metamaterial and plasmonic responses with respect to each other.

(b) A scanning electron micrograph of the etched hole array (period 430 nm) on the metal film. (c) Transmission microscope images of the SMM showing blue (hole period 250 nm), (d) green (hole period 340 nm), (e) yellow (hole period 380 nm) and (f) red (hole period 430 nm) plasmonic filters with the cERR array.

Fig. 3

Measured transmission spectra for the synthetic multi-spectral material (SMM). The individual filter spectra are shown in (a)-(d). The legend denotes the hole period, P, and diameter, d, for the plasmonic filters. cERR denotes the spectral characteristics due to the metamaterial (MM) filter component. (e) SMM spectral characteristics over a large wavelength range. Plasmonic filter regions of the SMM with hole periods: 250 nm (blue), 330 nm (green), 430 nm (red) and 550 nm (near infrared) are shown in addition to the MM filter component.

Comparison of the simulated standalone plasmonic filter spectra and the measured transmission spectra of plasmonic filter regions of the synthetic multi-spectral material (SMM). (a) A comparison of simulated peak wavelength with experimentally measured peak wavelength for the sixteen plasmonic filters included on the SMM. (b) Simulated transmission spectra for standalone RGB plasmonic filters and the scaled SMM RGB plasmonic filter spectra. The SMM spectra are scaled to account for the presence of the complementary electric ring resonator (cERR) gaps.

Fig. 5

Metamaterial (MM) filter simulation results and extracted effective parameters. (a) Simulated transmission spectra. The experimental results of the synthetic multi-spectral material (SMM) filter and a standalone MM filter without plasmonic filters are shown for comparison. (b) The complex effective permittivity of the SMM at terahertz frequencies and bulk aluminum permittivity at UV wavelengths. The vertical line denotes where the real effective permittivity of the SMM and the real permittivity of bulk aluminum crosses zero. This is at the effective plasma frequency of the SMM and the plasma frequency of aluminum. The bottom x axis and the left y axis are for the SMM effective parameters. The top x axis and the right y axis are for aluminum parameters.
