Abstract

Interest in optical properties of plasmonic nanoparticles embedded in transparent dielectrics is growing due to potential uses in biomedicine, sustainable energy, and manufacturing. This work evaluates geometric optics in polymer thin films containing mono- or polydisperse gold nanoparticles (AuNP) using a compact linear algebraic sum. Reflection and transmission from polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) films containing uniformly- or assymetrically-distributed monodisperse or polydisperse AuNPs decreased with AuNP morphological isotropy and particle density. In PDMS, monodisperse AuNPs increased optical attenuation linearly with gold content, while polydisperse AuNPs reduced from hydrogen tetrachloroaurate (TCA) increased optical attenuation in proportion to order-of-magnitude rises in gold content. Polydisperse AuNP concentrated asymmetrically at one film interface exhibited higher attenuation. Cumulative optical responses from AuNP-PDMS films paired with another film or reflective element were within 0.04 units on average from values predicted for transmission, reflection, or attenuation using linear algebra. These results support design of NP-containing dielectric films to integrate into biochemical, microelectromechanical, and optoelectronic devices and systems.

Geometric optical pathways for AuNP-PDMS film and an adjacent optical element as a function of transmission (T), reflection (R), and attenuation (A). For oAuNP and rAuNP-PDMS film pairs, the second optical element would be a second film with higher gold content. For estimation of the attenuation of asymmetric AuNP-containing layers, the AuNP-containing portion would be the 2nd component and the Au-free PDMS would be the 1st component.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Measured fractional transmission (T), reflection (R), and attenuation (A) for AuNP-PDMS films with and without an adjacent reflector. Measurements for each system are represented by the shape, color, and hatching of filled symbols. Solid colored circles represent single films, while split circles represent pairs of two adjacent films. A hatched triangle identifies the stainless steel reflector. Circles with hatching represent data from the reflector paired with a thin film of the corresponding color. Predictions for coupled systems are indicated by a small filled dot connected to a symbol. Dashed green arrows connect data from a single film with data from that film adjacent to the reflector. Arrow length shows the relative optical effect due to the support mesh.
