WORKING PAPER

Cortes, Xie W, Cambiasso, Jermyn AS, Sunduraraman R, Narang P, Schl├╝cker S, Maier SAet al., 2017, Plasmonic hot electron transport drives nano-localized chemistry, Nature Communications, ISSN: 2041-1723

Nanoscale localization of electromagnetic fields near metallic nanostructures underpins the fundamentals and applications of plasmonics. The unavoidable energy loss from plasmon decay, initially seen as a detriment, has now expanded the scope of plasmonic applications to exploit the generated hot carriers. However, quantitative understanding of the spatial localization of these hot carriers, akin to electromagnetic near-field maps, has been elusive. Here we spatially map hot-electron-driven reduction chemistry with 15 nanometre resolution as a function of time and electromagnetic field polarization for different plasmonic nanostructures. We combine experiments employing a six-electron photo-recycling process that modify the terminal group of a self-assembled monolayer on plasmonic silver nanoantennas, with theoretical predictions from first-principles calculations of non-equilibrium hot-carrier transport in these systems. The resulting localization of reactive regions, determined by hot carrier transport from high-field regions, paves the way for improving efficiency in hot-carrier extraction science and nanoscale regio-selective surface chemistry.

A core process in many quantum tasks is the generation of entanglement. It is being actively studied in a variety of physical settings-from simple bipartite systems to complex multipartite systems. In this work we experimentally study the generation of bipartite entanglement in a nanophotonic system. Entanglement is generated via the quantum interference of two surface plasmon polaritons in a beamsplitter structure, i.e., utilizing the Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) effect, and its presence is verified using quantum state tomography. The amount of entanglement is quantified by the concurrence and we find values of up to 0.77 ± 0.04. Verifying entanglement in the output state from HOM interference is a nontrivial task and cannot be inferred from the visibility alone. The techniques we use to verify entanglement could be applied to other types of photonic system and therefore may be useful for the characterization of a range of different nanophotonic quantum devices.

© 2017 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. Positioning probe molecules at electromagnetic hot spots with nanometer precision is required to achieve highly sensitive and reproducible surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) analysis. In this article, molecular positioning at plasmonic nanogaps is reported using a high aspect ratio (HAR) plasmonic nanopillar array with a controlled surface energy. A large-area HAR plasmonic nanopillar array is generated using a nanolithography-free simple process involving Ar plasma treatment applied to a smooth polymer surface and the subsequent evaporation of metal onto the polymer nanopillars. The surface energy can be precisely controlled through the selective removal of an adsorbed self-assembled monolayer of low surface-energy molecules prepared on the plasmonic nanopillars. This process can be used to tune the surface energy and provide a superhydrophobic surface with a water contact angle of 165.8° on the one hand or a hydrophilic surface with a water contact angle of 40.0° on the other. The highly tunable surface wettability is employed to systematically investigate the effects of the surface energy on the capillary-force-induced clustering among the HAR plasmonic nanopillars as well as on molecular concentration at the collapsed nanogaps present at the tops of the clustered nanopillars.

© 2017 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. Strontium molybdate (SrMoO 3 ) thin films are grown epitaxially on strontium titanate (SrTiO 3 ), magnesium oxide (MgO), and lanthanum aluminate (LaAlO 3 ) substrates by pulsed laser deposition and possess electrical resistivity as low as 100 μΩ cm at room temperature. SrMoO 3 is shown to have optical losses, characterized by the product of the Drude broadening, Γ D , and the square of the plasma frequency, ω pu 2 , significantly lower than TiN, though generally higher than Au. Also, it is demonstrated that there is a zero-crossover wavelength of the real part of the dielectric permittivity, which is between 600 and 950 nm (2.05 and 1.31 eV), as measured by spectroscopic ellipsometry. Moreover, the epsilon near zero (ENZ) wavelength can be controlled by engineering the residual strain in the films, which arises from a strain dependence of the charge carrier concentration, as confirmed by density of states calculations. The relatively broad tunability of ENZ behavior observed in SrMoO 3 demonstrates its potential suitability for transformation optics along with plasmonic applications in the visible to near infrared spectral range.
