Hybridization of Lattice Resonances

Plasmon hybridization, the electromagnetic analog of molecular orbital theory, provides a simple and intuitive method to describe the plasmonic response of complex nanostructures from the combination of the responses of their individual constituents. Here, we follow this approach to investigate the optical properties of periodic arrays of plasmonic nanoparticles with multiparticle unit cells. These systems support strong collective lattice resonances, arising from the coherent multiple scattering enabled by the lattice periodicity. Due to the extended nature of these modes, the interaction between them is very different from that among localized surface plasmons supported by individual nanoparticles. This leads to a much richer hybridization scenario, which we exploit here to design periodic arrays with engineered properties. These include arrays with two-particle unit cells, in which the interaction between the individual lattice resonances can be canceled or maximized by controlling the relative positio...
