Enhanced broadband optical transmission in metallized woodpiles

Last modified: 2009-11-07


We present an optimized isotropic metal deposition technique used for coating three-dimensional polymer structures with a 50nm smooth silver layer. The technology allows fast isotropic 3D coating of complex dielectric structures with thin silver layers. Transmission measurements of 3D metallized woodpiles reveal a new phenomenon of enhanced optical transmission in broadband range (up to 300 nm) in the near IR.
