Paper Abstract

We investigate the surface plasmon resonance in a new composite nanostructure (Nanowires array beneath metal film). Computational simulation results exhibit that, for both transverse electric(TE) and transverse magnetic (TM) polarization, the positions of resonance peaks is extremely sensitive to the change of center distance (Filling ratio of nanowires). When the diameter of Nanowires is 4nm and under TM polarization, the resonance angle increasing with the increase of center distance. In the case of TE polarization, the result is completely the opposite within limits. It is also shown that changes in thickness of Ag film(At the top of the Ag nanowire) has little direct effect on the resonance angle, But the characteritics of SPR intensity is influenced by the thickness of Ag film in the most degree. When the thickness of Ag film is 50 nm, In range of 10nm to 100nm, the minimum value of the reflectance is only 0.05, the result is consistent with the previous studies. Additionally, the nano composite structure material is very sensitive to the refractive index change of the lowest layer when under the TE- polarization. we have done mode analysis of the SPR structure for both simple and practical structures using comsol multiphysics, our approach is intend to show the feasibity and extend the applicability of the plasmonic nanowires, could lead to provide the basis for design the new structure of nanowires array.
