Paper Abstract

We have demonstrated a method of fabricating long-range arrays of 2D metallic microstructures on glass surfaces and measured the optical resonances of those structures. Gold and silver stripes are fabricated using microcontact printing with PDMS gratings and electroless plating techniques without the use of resist masks or etching. Changing the blaze angle and periodicity of the gratings used to make the PDMS stamps varies the line widths. The optical response of these fabricated transmission gratings was evaluated by measuring the transmission spectra while varying the angle of the incident light.
