Hierarchy in optical near-fields based on compositions of nanomaterials
Optical near-field interactions exhibit hierarchical responses in the nanometer scale allowing unique functions in nanophotonic systems. Such hierarchical properties in optical near-fields originate various physical entities in the nanometer scale. Engineering nanomaterial compositions, while maintaining geometrically equivalent conditions, leads to characteristic hierarchical responses. We experimentally demonstrate such material-dependent optical near-field hierarchy using core–shell-type nanostructures composed of gold and silver.
