Dielectric properties of ultra-thin metal films around the percolation threshold — •Martin Hövel, Martin Alws, Bruno Gompf, and Martin Dressel — 1.Physikalisches Institut, Universität Stuttgart, Pfaffenwaldring 57, 70550 Stuttgart, Germany

The dielectric properties of percolating metal films around the insulator-to-metal (IMT) transition are not well understood [1]. By combining Fouriertransform infrared spectroscopy (FITR), spectroscopic ellipsometry, and dc-conductivity measurements on ultra-thin Au films on Si/SiO2 the effective dielectric properties around the IMT can be described Kramers-Kronig consistent over a very brought frequency range from 500 to 27 000 cm−1. Above a critical thickness dc, the so called percolation threshold, the films show for low frequencies a typical metallic-like behavior which can be fitted by a simple Drude-Model [2]. Below dc the frequency behavior is dominated by a "Maxwell-Garnett resonance" which shifts to lower frequencies with increasing film thickness and dies out well above the IMT. A dielectric anomaly with a maximum of є1 at dc is observed and can be described by the interplay of this resonance and the onset of the Drude-component. Additionally the temperature dependence of the films were studied. Here also a transition from an activated to a metallic like behavior at dc was found.
