Nanosphere Lithography to Enable Plasmonic Applications pp.195-243 $100.00
Authors:  (Yue Bing Zheng, Tony Jun Huang, Department of Engineering Sciences and Mechanics, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pennsylvania
Surface plasmon-based photonics, or “plasmonics”, combines the capacity of
photonics with the miniaturization of electronics, thereby merging photonics and
electronics at nanoscale dimensions. Fundamental research in plasmonics benefits
applications such as nanophotonic integrated circuits, biological sensing and imaging,
selective photothermal therapy, perfect lenses, and electromagnetic cloaks. To realize
these applications, fabrication of plasmonic nanostructures is the first and one of the most
significant challenges to overcome. This challenge entails the development of costeffective
and high-throughput methods to produce plasmonic nanostructrues that are
tailorable and scalable for various applications. Nanosphere lithography (NSL) is a lowcost
and high-throughput method of nanofabrication, where self-assembled layers of
nanospheres serve as templates or masks in the production of ordered nanostructure
arrays. This chapter discusses the authors’ recent work in NSL to produce ordered arrays
of plasmonic nanostructures with various morphologies: prisms, rings, caps, disks, holes,
and wires. The localized surface plasmon resonances (LSPR) of two such arrays –
Au/TiO2 core/shell nanoprism arrays and Au nanodisk arrays – were investigated
experimentally and theoretically. The arrays exhibited LSPR of high intensity and narrow
bandwidth that was further tailored by controlling the structures’ geometric parameters
(their shapes and sizes), the topologies of the substrates, and the refractive indices of the
surrounding media. Furthermore, the authors demonstrated an application of such
nanostructures in an all-optical plasmonic switch based on Au nanodisk arrays and
photoresponsive liquid crystals. It is likely that due to the low cost and high throughput in
the nanofabrication process along with their high-quality, engineerable plasmonic
characteristics, these plasmonic nanostructure arrays can be established as an excellent
platform for both fundamental research and engineering applications in plasmonics.
