Here we report on the development of an unconventional approach for the physical synthesis of laterally ordered self-organized arrays of metallic nanowires supported on nanostructured dielectric templates. The method, based on a combination of nanoscale patterning of the glass substrate by ion beam sputtering with shadow deposition of the metal nanoparticles, provides a viable alternative to time consuming serial nanopatterning approaches. Far-field optical characterization demonstrates that the nanowire arrays exhibit tunable anisotropic properties in the visible range due to the excitation of localized plasmon resonances.

Abstract

Here we report on the development of an unconventional approach for the physical synthesis of laterally ordered self-organized arrays of metallic nanowires supported on nanostructured dielectric templates. The method, based on a combination of nanoscale patterning of the glass substrate by ion beam sputtering with shadow deposition of the metal nanoparticles, provides a viable alternative to time consuming serial nanopatterning approaches. Far-field optical characterization demonstrates that the nanowire arrays exhibit tunable anisotropic properties in the visible range due to the excitation of localized plasmon resonances.
