Abstract

We theoretically demonstrate that nanocomposites made of colloidal semiconductor quantum dot monolayers placed between metal nanoparticle monolayers can function as multilayer hyperbolic metamaterials. Depending on the thickness of the spacer between the quantum dot and nanoparticle layers, the effective permittivity tensor of the nanocomposite is shown to become indefinite, resulting in increased photonic density of states and strong enhancement of quantum dot luminescence. This explains the results of recent experiments [T. Ozel et al., ACS Nano 5, 1328 (2011)] and confirms that hyperbolic metamaterials are capable of increasing the radiative decay rate of emission centers inside them. The proposed theoretical framework can also be used to design quantum-dot/nanoplasmonic composites with optimized luminescence enhancement.

(a) Isofrequency surfaces in the dispersion relation ( k x 2 + k y 2 ) / ε z + k z 2 / ε x , y = ω 2 / c 2 for conventional anisotropic medium (εx,y,z > 0) and indefinite medium (εx,y < 0 and εz > 0). (b) Schematics of a multilayer metal-dielectric HMM. (c) Schematics of NP-spacer-NC from [31], showing the geometrical notation used in the paper.

Plots of the real part of (a) εx = εy and (b) εz depending on the spacer thickness ds and the incident light wavelength λ for the structure shown in Fig. 1(c). The green dashed line in (b) shows the singularity where Re ε z 1 = 0.

High-κ wave vector dependencies of ImRp for (a) ds = 0, N = ∞; (b) ds = 8 nm, N = ∞; (c) ds = 8 nm and N = 2, 3, 5.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Ratio of decay rate for the structure with and without spacer [β = b(ds)/b(ds = 0)] in absence of material losses and therefore corresponding to the radiative rate enhancement for (a) parallel (f = 1, f = 0) and (b) perpendicular (f = 1, f = 0) orientation of the emitting dipole. The middle column shows the 2D dependence β(ds, λ); the left column shows β(ds) at three wavelengths; the right column shows β(λ) for three values of ds.
