Abstract

Out-of-plane lattice plasmons (OLPs) supported by metallic nanoparticle arrays are promising for diverse applications due to their remarkably narrow linewidths and significant enhancement of local fields. Here we investigate the necessary conditions for metallic nanoparticle arrays to achieve OLPs. Our results show that, besides the prerequisites of large height, oblique incidence, and TM polarization, which have been pointed out by the literature; the array period should be properly designed within a limited range, the dielectric environment should be homogeneous, and the height and the angle of incidence need to be optimized. We expect this work will advance the understanding and engineering of OLPs in metallic nanoparticle arrays and promote their applications in nanolasers, ultrasensitive biochemical sensors, and nonlinear optics.
