In this paper, we study the role of nanoparticle shape and aperiodic arrangement in the scattering and spatial localization properties of plasmonic modes in deterministic-aperiodic (DA) arrays of metal nanoparticles. By using an efficient coupled-dipole model for the study of the electromagnetic response of large arrays excited by an external field, we(More)
We used the particle swarm optimization algorithm, an evolutionary computational technique, to design metal nanoparticle arrays that produce broadband plasmonic field enhancement over the entire visible spectral range. The resulting structures turn out to be aperiodic and feature dense Fourier spectra with many closely packed particle clusters. We conclude(More)
In this paper, we investigate the plasmonic near-field localization and the far-field scattering properties of non-periodic arrays of Ag nanoparticles generated by prime number sequences in two spatial dimensions. In particular, we demonstrate that the engineering of plasmonic arrays with large spectral flatness and particle density is necessary to achieve(More)
