Abstract

Following the impact of a single femtosecond light pulse on nickel nanostripes, material deformations—or “nanobumps”—are created. We have studied the dependence of these nanobumps on the length of nanostripes and verified the link with plasmons. More specifically, local electric currents can melt the nanostructures in the hotspots, where hydrodynamic processes give rise to nanobumps. This process is further confirmed by independently simulating local magnetic fields, since these are produced by the same local electric currents.

(a) Schematic diagram of the experimental configuration. The electric field of light causes charge separation in the nanostructure, and the associated local electric current oscillations induce heating and melting in the hotspots. The temperature increase in these hotspots is evaluated by numerical simulations in (b) and (c), where the direction of linear polarization is indicated with a double arrow. The melting results in the formation of nanobumps, as shown by the SEM image in (d). For a polarization oriented perpendicularly to the nanostructures, the position of the nanobumps is shown in (e).

For incident light with 800 nm wavelength, different plasmon modes are excited, depending on the dimensions of the nanostructures. In (a) SEM shows the pattern of nanobumps that are induced by single light pulses with polarization oriented along the nanostructures. The nanobumps that are induced for perpendicular polarization are shown in (b).

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Both the positions of local electric currents and the induced magnetic fields in the nanostructures match the pattern of the nanobumps. For the case of incident light, polarized along the nanostructures, numerical simulations of the local electric current and of the induced magnetic fields are shown in (a) and (b), respectively. For the case of light polarization perpendicular to the nanostructures, the local electric currents and the induced magnetic fields are presented in (c) and (d), respectively.
