Abstract
We report on the unusually high optical transmitivity of silver coated two-dimensional colloidal crystals. Our sample consists of a 50 nm silver film deposited on top of a regular two-dimensional array of polystyrene spheres of 400 nm diameter. Two-dimensional colloidal crystals were prepared according to the drop-coating technique, and subsequently covered in a silver film by thermal evaporation. Morphology of the crystal was checked by means of scanning electron microscopy. We measured transmission through the composite metallo-dielectric films at normal and also oblique incidence. Additional reflectance spectra and surface enhanced Raman scattering are used to understand the optical/plasmonic properties of the prepared nanostructure. Dependence of the spectral features on incident angle suggests highly localized optical/plasmonic modes are involved in the mechanism of transmission.
