Optimal design of plasmonic nanostructures for plasmon-interference assisted lithography
Applied Physics B: Lasers and Optics
We investigate the problem of synthesizing plasmonic nanostructures through the application of a bio-inspired stochastic optimization technique. We show, through some numerical experiments, that the approach proposed could serve as a starting point for the optimal fabrication and characterization of nanometric structures with defined scattering properties. Furthermore, we discuss its possibilities and potential applications.
