Manipulating Light in Coupled Asymmetric Nanostructures Induced by a Visible–NIR Laser

We design an asymmetric nanostructure in the longitudinal direction at the visible–NIR range, which enables high enhancement factor and has the properties of Fano resonance induced by a visible–NIR laser. By simulating and analyzing the resonance frequency spectra of various nanorods, nanodipoles, and combined nanoantennas, we optimize the resonant spectra and enhanced factor of such nanoantennas. It has broad-band resonant spectra with a FWHM from 800 to 1,100 nm and possesses two resonant peaks at 870 and 1,000 nm, with an enhancement factor of 24. The current density distribution in such nanoantennas with different phases is also simulated in order to investigate its resonant mode. This theoretical study paves the way towards nanoscale lightwave control and spectral splitting. The designed nanodevices provide great potential for applications in ultrasensitive color sorters and biosensors induced by visible–NIR lasers.
