Realization and Characterization of POLICRYPS-like Structures Including Metallic Subentities
A first characterization of newly realized micro periodic structures including metallic nanoparticles is reported. The original mixture, generally utilized for the realization of polymer-liquid-crystal-polymer-slices gratings (POLICRYPS), has been enriched with a small amount of silver nanoparticles. The obtained structure shows a spectral response that strongly depends on the polarization of the probing light. These first structures are oriented to the fabrication of devices with metamaterial properties.
