Abstract

A corrugated metal thin film can enhance the emission of light-emitting devices by the assistance of radiative surface plasmons. But, away from the resonant frequency, the metal thin film has a shielding effect on transmission. We replace the corrugated thin film by a discontinuous metal nanostructure, the isolated metal nanohemispheres can induce localized surface plasmons. The angular dependence and two different wavelengths are studied. The reflection on dielectric layers may be reduced and the transmission could be raised by the localized surface plasmons even the resonance condition is not fulfilled. The scattered Ey component is sensitive to the tilt angle, it might be useful to some novel applications.
