Abstract

Reconfigurable localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) is an essential characteristic for various applications to support Society 5.0. However, many LSPR spectrum have poor reconfigurability. As a novelty, we proposed a reconfigurable LSPR spectrum by acousto-dynamic coupling in arrays of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) induced by shear-horizontal vibrations. The vibrations were produced by piezoelectric phenomena especially shear horizontal surface acoustic waves (SH-SAWs) on a 36XY-LiTaO3 substrate after applying an electric signal, the ON-condition. The experimental results demonstrated that the ON-condition produced a blueshift effect on the peak position (λP) with an adjustment quality factor compared to the OFF-condition. Moreover, in order to perform the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) analysis, we reproduced the morphological structure of AuNPs base on scanning electron microscope (SEM) images. The different coupling distances and different arrays structures were utilized as ON-condition approaches for dimer AuNPs and arrays AuNPs, respectively. The FDTD simulation obtained a blueshift effect compared to the initial structure. Finally, the proposed structure successfully combines piezoelectric phenomena with plasmonic phenomena to produce reconfigurable LSPR. The LSPR spectrum can be switched comfortably and reverses easily. The proposed method can be applied for multifunctional sensors with the high possibility of integration into a wireless network.
