Abstract

A scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) -cathodoluminescence (CL) technique is used to investigate the size dependence of the band structures in two-dimensional plasmonic crystals with a square lattice (SQ-PlCs) composed of cylindrical pillars and holes. The experimentally determined and calculated dependences of the band edge energies of the three SPP modes at the γ point on the diameter of the cylindrical structure agree well. The photon maps reveal the field strength distributions of the standing SPP waves of the three eigenmodes. Additionally, a mechanism is proposed to explain the dependence of the contrast on the detected light polarization.
