Author Affiliations +
Periodic nanostructures for plasmonic engineering, comprising one or two types of silica core - metallic shell spherical particles, are studied by means of full electrodynamic calculations using the layer-multiple-scattering method. The complex photonic band structure of such three-dimensional crystals is analyzed in conjunction with relevant transmission spectra of corresponding finite slabs and the physical origin of the different optical modes is elucidated, providing a consistent interpretation of the underlying physics. In the case of binary structures, collective plasmonic modes originating from the two building components coexist, leading to broadband absorption and a rich structure of resonances and hybridization gaps over an extended frequency range.
