Abstract

Optical properties of a silver-island film are interpreted by taking account of retarded dipole-dipole interactions between island particles instead of the static-field interaction. The discrepancies between the values of the structural parameters evaluated from electron micrographs and those evaluated optically with the assumption of the static-field dipole-dipole interaction can be thus interpreted. The retarded dipole-dipole interactions as well as the size effect also broaden the width of the plasma-resonance absorption peaks.

  7. Equations (17) and (18) shows that, when F+g=0, the imaginary parts of the left-hand sides of the equations become maximum values. On the other hand, the approximate expressions of T0 and Tp of an anisotropic film include Im (∊11) and Im(∊11)+ Im(1/∊1), respectively, in their denominators. Because the bulk dielectric constant of the particle can be used as ∊i in Eq. (21), g is known as a function of the wavelength of light λ. Therefore, if we measure T0 and Tp as functions of λ, we can determine the values of F from the observed dip wavelength of the transmittance spectra. Detailed descriptions are given in Refs. 1 and 2.
