Interplay of plasmon resonances in binary nanostructures

By introducing the difference permittivity ratio eta=(epsilon (2)-epsilon (0))/(epsilon (1)-epsilon (0)), the Green matrix method for computing surface plasmon resonances is extended to binary nanostructures. Based on the near field coupling, the interplay of plasmon resonances in two closely packed nanostrips is investigated. At a fixed wavelength, with varying eta the resonances exhibit different regions: the dielectric effect region, resonance chaos region, collective resonance region, resonance flat region, and new branches region. Simultaneously, avoiding crossing and mode transfer phenomena between the resonance branches are observed. These findings will be helpful to design hybrid plasmonic subwavelength structures.
