Differential reflectivity spectroscopy on single patch nanoantennas

Abstract : We present an experimental technique adapted to characterize individual metallic nanostructures in terms of differential reflectivity spectroscopy. We analyze gold patch nanoantennas holding different morphological properties. Our experimental methodology shows steady and reliable results consistent with classical analytical approximations and simulation methods. This technique allows us to identify absorption properties of metallic nanostructures commonly associated with surface plasmon resonances. By contrasting the light absorbed solely by the metallic antenna with respect to a surrounding reference medium, we found that some antennas show absorption of almost 50% of the incident light across the range of the visible spectrum. Plasmonic patch nanoantennas are promising systems in which the confinement of the electromagnetic field inside the dielectric gap strongly modifies the local density of states.
