Fishnet-Based Metamaterials: Spectral Tuning Through Adsorption Mechanism
Article (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
In this work we consider the tuning of spectral reflectance of fishnet metamaterials with circular or elliptic apertures due to the presence of dielectric analyte adsorbed within the pores of the dielectric part. We simulated the electromagnetic response of the fishnet metamaterials for the optical range utilizing the finite element method. Our investigation is dedicated to ultrathin, freestanding laminated structures (metal-dielectric-metal self-supported nanomembrane sandwiches with nanometric thickness). We also investigated some issues connected with experimental fabrication of the freestanding fishnets for adsorbtion-based sensors.
