Engineering plasmonic light scattering with thin dielectric films: towards enhanced light trapping and novel sensing elements

Abstract:

Plasmonic research is becoming increasingly focused on the integration of noble metal nanostructures with planar devices to enhance their performance. Whilst the physics of noble metal nanoparticles at a simple interface is well studied, their behaviour inside a thin film structure is not. This work investigates the effect that placement in a thin dielectric film has on the excited modes and the directional scattering from various geometries of nanoparticle; the focus is on the fundamental...
