Azimuthally and radially excited charge transfer plasmon and Fano lineshapes in conductive sublayer-mediated nanoassemblies

J Opt Soc Am A Opt Image Sci Vis. 2017 Nov 1;34(11):2052-2056. doi: 10.1364/JOSAA.34.002052.


Here, the plasmon responses of both symmetric and antisymmetric oligomers on a conductive substrate under linear, azimuthal, and radial polarization excitations are analyzed numerically. By observing charge transfer plasmons under cylindrical vector beam (CVB) illumination for what we believe is the first time, we show that our studies open new horizons to induce significant charge transfer plasmons and antisymmetric Fano resonance lineshapes in metallic substrate-mediated plasmonic nanoclusters under both azimuthal and radial excitation as CVBs.
