Abstract

In this work we propose two novel sensing principles of detection that exploit the magnetic dipolar Mie resonance in high-refractive-index dielectric nanospheres. In particular, we theoretically investigate the spectral evolution of the extinction and scattering cross sections of these nanospheres as a function of the refractive index of the external medium (next). Unlike resonances in plasmonic nanospheres, the spectral position of magnetic resonances in high-refractive-index nanospheres barely shifts as next changes. Nevertheless, there is a drastic reduction in the extinction cross section of the nanospheres when next increases, especially in the magnetic dipolar spectral region, which is accompanied with remarkable variations in the radiation patterns. Thanks to these changes, we propose two new sensing parameters, which are based on the detection of: i) the intensity variations in the transmitted or backscattered radiation by the dielectric nanospheres at the magnetic dipole resonant frequency, and ii) the changes in the radiation pattern at the frequency that satisfies Kerker’s condition of near-zero forward radiation. To optimize the sensitivity, we consider several semiconductor materials and particles sizes.

Extinction efficiency spectra of spherical particles of different semiconductor materials in vacuum (next = 1). Particle size is R = 100nm to achieve Mie resonances localized in the visible range.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Extinction efficiency spectra of a spherical silicon particle for several next values. Particle sizes are (a) R = 200nm and (b) R = 100nm. The three different modes, electric dipolar (ED), magnetic dipolar (MD) and magnetic quadrupolar (MQ), are labeled. Arrows show the evolution of the spectral position of resonances as the external refractive index increases. Vertical lines point the wavelengths that satisfy Kerker’s conditions in vacuum. Curves with next>1 have been shifted upwards (by adding a constant background) for clarity.

Extinction efficiency at the magnetic dipolar resonance wavelength in vacuum as a function of the next, for nanospheres of different semiconductor materials. The particle sizes are (a) R = 200nm and (b) R = 100nm. The evolution of the extinction efficiency of a gold nanosphere at the electric dipolar resonance wavelength is also included as a dashed line.

(b) Spectral evolution of Qext in a silicon (solid black line) and in a gold (dashed blue line) nanoparticle of radius R = 100nm, embedded in water. (c) Spectral sensitivity of Qext, at next = 1.33for a silicon (red curve) and a gold (blue curve) nanoparticle.

Polar representation of the differential scattering efficiency, in arbitrary units, of a Si nanoparticle (R = 100nm) which is illuminated by a plane wave whose wavelength satisfies (a) the zero-backward or (b) the minimum-forward condition in vacuum, for several values next. The incident light beam is linearly polarized with the electric field perpendicular to the scattering plane. A zoom of the central area is shown in the bottom part of the figure to observe in detail the evolution as next changes.
