Ultrasensitive sensors of various physical properties can be based on percolation systems, e.g., insulating media filled with nearly touching conducting particles. Such a system at its percolation threshold featuring the critical particle concentration, changes drastically its response (electrical conduction, light transmission, etc.) when subjected to an external stimulus. Due to the critical nature of this threshold, a given state at the threshold is typically very unstable. However, stability can be restored without significantly sacrificing the structure sensitivity by forming weak connections between the conducting particles. In this work, we employed nano-bridged nanosphere lithography to produce such a weakly connected percolation system. It consists of two coupled quasi-Babinet complementary arrays, one with weakly connected, and the other with disconnected metallic islands. We demonstrate via experiment and simulation that the physics of this plasmonic system is non-trivial, and leads to the extraordinary optical transmission at narrowly defined peaks sensitive to system parameters, with surface plasmons mediating this process. Thus, our system is a potential candidate for percolation effect based sensor applications. Promising detection schemes could be based on these effects.

2.  Akinoglu G.E., Akinoglu E.M., Kempa K., Giersig M., Plasmon resonances in coupled Babinet complementary arrays in the mid-infrared range, OPTICS EXPRESS, ISSN: 1094-4087, DOI: 10.1364/OE.27.022939, Vol.27, No.16, pp.22939-22950, 2019

A plasmonic structure with transmission highly tunable in the mid-infrared spectra range is developed. This structure consists of a hexagonal array of metallic discs located on top of silicon pillars protruding through holes in a metallic Babinet complementary film. We reveal with FDTD simulations that changing the hole diameter tunes the main plasmonic resonance frequency of this structure throughout the infrared range. Due to the underlying Babinet physics of these coupled arrays, the spectral width of these plasmonic resonances is strongly reduced, and the higher harmonics are suppressed. Furthermore, we demonstrate that this structure can be easily produced by a combination of the nanosphere lithography and the metal-assisted chemical etching technique.
