We developed a method of composite domain control (CDC) for plasmon resonance as an application of multilayered domain control (MLDC). A distinctive characteristic of CDC is the utilization of dielectric and metal particles. Its structure is similar to that fabricated by the sol-gel method. It is considerably thinner than that prepared by MLDC. In addition, it is possible to conveniently and exactly adjust the plasmon resonance utilizing CDC because it combines the characteristics of MLDC. Accordingly, CDC is a conventional method that is more effective than MLDC. Moreover, CDC is suitable in manufacturing with regard to stress reduction, miniaturization, and cost of the products.
