Abstract

Using valence-loss energy-filtering transmission electron microscopy, we measure the optical response of an arrangement of nanoholes in a Ag film over a wide range of wavelengths (0.52μm). This technique allows us to detect the full transition from localized excitations to traveling guided modes with a spatial resolution of a few nanometers. By the well-defined arrangement of the nanoholes, we can clearly distinguish coupling effects from single-hole resonances. This type of experiment is ideally suited for the future design of biosensors and metamaterials.

Figures (3)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Bright-field image of the hole structure. The holes appear bright. The upper row contains isolated holes, the other holes are closely spaced and partly overlap. Spectra from the marked regions are displayed in Fig. 3.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Series of 12 energy-filtered images of the hole structure shown in Fig. 1. The energy loss is shown in each of the images. The intensity is coded in colors for better visibility. Because of the strong variations in energy-loss intensity the intensities are shown on a logarithmic scale using different color codes for the three horizontal image series, as displayed on the left side of each row.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Energy-loss spectra from the regions marked in Fig. 1. The positions of the resonances are marked by arrows. The intensities are normalized to the areas from which the spectra were extracted.
