Abstract (en)

Using infrared spectroscopy of plasmonic resonances and mapping of elemental composition and structure, we investigated the correlation between optical and structural properties of nanometre-scale gaps in gold nanorod dimers fabricated by electron beam lithography (EBL) and focused ion beam (FIB) milling. In spite of their very similar scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images, a fully cut nanogap and a shallower cut with slight imperfection near the gap region were clearly distinguished by their strongly different infrared plasmonic resonance behaviour. The differences in the infrared spectra are related to different structural and chemical results from elaborated cross-sectional transmission electron micrographs and energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry (EDX) mapping of the gap region.
