Hybrid plasmonic oligomer for large-area low-cost nano-size gas sensors — •Jun Zhao, Nikolai Strohfeldt, Andreas Tittl und Harald Giessen — 4th Physics Institute and Research Center SCoPE, University of Stuttgart, Germany
Plasmonic gas sensing on the single nanoparticle level has drawn a lot of attention over the last years [1, 2]. We demonstrate direct contact gas sensing using hybrid complex plasmonic nanostructures, such as multilayer oligomers, where gold directly touches the palladium. Optimizing the sensing nanogeometry, we obtain spectral shifts of more than 10 nm depending on different H2 concentrations, which show a very high sensitivity of our system. We investigate the optical response of varied sandwich structure geometries, which can be used for different sensing applications. Our samples are fabricated by low-cost hole-mask colloidal nanolithography [3, 4] over areas of 1 cm2, and give very large absorption and scattering signals.
