1 September 2015 Giant field fluctuations in dielectric metamaterial and Raman sensor
Author Affiliations +
New dielectric metamaterial based on the Bragg filter comprising ten dielectric bilayers was investigated. Each bilayer is the thin films of silicone dioxide (SiO2) and another film of zirconium dioxide (ZrO2). The surface of the multilayer film is profiled. It has a form of periodic system of rectangles separated by the open gaps. We use the computer simulation as well as analytical solution to find the reflectance of the multilayer as a function of the wavelength and electromagnetic (em) field distribution. The multilayer system reveals the enhancement of em fields at the surface. The considered Bragg filter was modified by Raman-active structure made of gold nanoparticles with chemically attached 3,3-thio-bis(6- nitrobenzoic acid) - (TNB). The high Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) signal was detected.
