Paper Abstract

In this work, we use the iterative Richardson-Lucy (RL) deconvolution to further increase the energy resolution of electron energy loss spectra of surface plasmon resonances (SPR) in silver nanostructures. We obtain a record e_ective energy resolution of 10 meV after 500 iterations for spectral features below 1 eV. We extract energy- _ltered maps of SPR of a nanorod at energies down to 0.25 eV, corresponding to the mid-infrared region on the electromagnetic spectrum. And we are able to identify hydrid-SPR peaks separated by only 70 meV from two nano-squares with a gap of 100 nm between them, demonstrating that the RL deconvolution applied to spectra acquired with a monochromator is a useful tool to characterize plasmonic structures at low energies with high energy resolution.
