Optical transmission properties of corrugated nanoscale hole arrays in thin gold films
We present the characterization of short-range ordered hexagonal arrays of subwavelength holes in thin gold films. The hole arrays are fabricated by a low-cost technique using convectively self-assembled polystyrene beads as an initial pattern template. Our results suggest that corrugated, short-range ordered hole arrays allow the excitation of resonant surface plasmons. This opens the door to inexpensive, large- scale and high throughput fabrication of nanophotonic devices.
