A method of vapor phase codeposition has been used at elevated target temperature coupled with selective masking technique to produce a multicomponent optical material with seven different ultraviolet-visible optical active planes. Such a system consists of different nanocomposites of Teflon AF/Ag, Teflon AF/Au, and Teflon AF/Cu with sharp interfaces. The fabricated system has regions of single nanocomposite plane together with multilayer structures facilitating tunable multiple particle plasmon resonance wavelength response from a single system. Distinct double and triple plasmon wavelength resonance absorptions could be obtained from such interfaces forming multilayers of either two or three nanocomposite structures. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    Simultaneous excitation of cavity resonance (CR) and surface plasmon resonance (SPR) was observed in the angular spectrum by substituting Ag/Al2O3/Ag layers for the metal film in a Kretschmann structure.

    Surface plasmon polaritons, propagating bound oscillations of electrons and light at a metal surface, have great potential as information carriers for next-generation, highly integrated nanophotonic devices. Since the term ‘active plasmonics’ was coined in 2004, a number of...

    In this paper, we used the finite-difference time domain method to determine whether metallic caps provide plasmonic enhancement of absorption in vertically aligned silicon nanowire arrays. Metallic caps result naturally from the vapor-liquid-solid growth process, which uses metal catalyst...
