Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present experimental analysis on the effect of composition of the adhesion layer (chromium or titanium) between gold and a Pyrex substrate on the optical resonance transmission properties of nano-hole arrays in an optically thick gold film. Nano-hole arrays of different hole periodicities in a square lattice arrangement were fabricated with three types of adhesion layer (5 nm Cr, 5 nm Ti or 10 nm Ti). The optical transmission of each nano-hole array was measured and the optical resonance transmission properties were analyzed and compared as a function of hole periodicity and type of adhesion layer.
