Paper Abstract

The Surface Plasmonic Resonances (SPRs) excited by two complementary Plasmonic structures, 2 dimensional metallic disc array (2DMDA) and subwavlength hole array (2DSHA), are simulated and analyzed. The 2DMDA and 2DSHA enhancement on quantum dot infrared photodetectors (QDIPs) are also evaluated and compared. The 2DSHA give a large peak photocurrent enhancement about 40 times, whereas the 2DMDA provide 10 times with broad band enhancement. The cause of the difference in enhancement is analyzed. It’s indicated that the QDIP enhancement depends on the interaction of the plasmonic fields with the quantum dots (QDs). Based on the experimental and simulations results, suggestions are provided for future improving the device enhancement. The results reported in this paper consolidate our efforts in bringing the innovative view of plasmonic research through two complementary plasmonic structures.
