Abstract

We fabricate split-ring-resonator arrays via direct laser writing of polymers, followed by atomic-layer deposition of titania, chemical vapor deposition of silver, and focused-ion-beam milling. While structures like that have been fabricated previously by other means, our approach here allows for a direct comparison with the optical properties of corrugated metal surfaces, which are fabricated along the same lines. This comparison reveals substantial differences regarding the magnetic metamaterial properties. In particular, we find that the optical response of the corrugated metal surfaces is due to a higher-order magnetic resonance, whereas that of the split-ring resonators stems from their fundamental magnetic resonance.
