Abstract

A class of plasmonic interferometers consisting of a circular slit flanked by a concentric circular groove is demonstrated. Laying in-between the conventional bullseye and the linear slit-groove interferometers, these circular slit-groove interferometers show a polarization-insensitive optical response (thanks to the rotational symmetry imposed by the circular geometry), and overall higher light transmission (due to the absence of a cutoff condition in the circular subwavelength slit). Light transmission and sensitivity can be further enhanced by the presence of plasmonic resonant modes excited by the circular slit. The proposed circular plasmonic interferometers can be employed to develop improved biochemical sensors.

Figures (7)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 (a) SEM image of a circular SG plasmonic interferometer with RS = 2.5 μm and RG = 13 μm. The arm length of the interferometer, defined as the separation distance between the groove and the slit, is p = 10.5 μm. The slit and groove widths are 100 and 300 nm, respectively. The depth of the groove is ∼20 nm. (b) SEM image of a bullseye structure with a hole and a concentric groove, which is an extreme case of a circular SG plasmonic interferometer with RS = 0. (c) SEM image of a linear SG plasmonic interferometer featured by a linear slit flanked by a groove, which is the other extreme case of a circular SG plasmonic interferometer with RS = RG = ∞.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 (a)-(d) Representative SEM images of circular slit-groove (SG) plasmonic interferometers with different RS: RS = 0.25 μm (a), 2.5 μm (b), 11 μm (c), RS = RG = ∞ (d). (e)-(h) Respective SEM images of isolated circular slits with different RS: RS = 0.25 μm (e), 2.5 μm (f), 11 μm (g), RS = ∞ (h). (i)-(l) Normalized transmitted intensity spectra for circular SG plasmonic interferometers with p = 5.45 μm, RS = 0.25 μm (i), 2.5 μm (j), 11 μm (k), RS = RG = ∞ (l). (m)-(p) Color maps showing normalized transmission spectra (Au/air interface) for the four kinds of plasmonic interferometers, as shown above, with fixed RS (0.25 μm, 2.5 μm, 11 μm and ∞) and varying p (–1.75 to 8 μm, in steps of 0.05 μm). For the case of RS = 0.25 μm and the linear SG plasmonic interferometer, the experimental p value starts at 0.5 μm. In the absence of experimental data, the region p < 0.5 μm is intentionally left blank in panels (m) and (p).
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 (a) Raw spectra of light intensity transmitted through an isolated circular slit (RS = 2.5 μm, black line) and a linear slit (RS = ∞, red line). (b) Ratio between the transmitted intensity of the two structures as a function of wavelength. Four peaks are observed at ~555 nm, 610 nm, 675 nm, and 765 nm as denoted by the dashed lines, in good agreement with the horizontal white band positions observed in Fig. 2(n). Note that the reported ratio in (b) is calculated only for qualitative description and identification of the wavelength position of the resonant peaks; the specific relative intensity ratio values are therefore irrelevant since they are obtained from two totally different structures.

(c),(d) Color maps of normalized transmission spectra of the two types of plasmonic interferometers with varying p (0.25-8 μm, in steps of 0.05 μm) on Au/air interface.

(h) Normalized transmitted spectra for a specific linear SG plasmonic interferometer (p = 6.85 μm) on Au/air (black) and Au/water (red) interfaces.

The transmitted intensity of TE-polarized light has been magnified by a factor of 100 for clarity.
