Abstract [en]

Nanostructures composed of dielectric, metallic or metalo-dielectric structures are receiving significant attention due to their unique capabilities to manipulate light for a wide range of functions such as spectral colors, anti-reflection and enhanced light-matter interaction. The optical properties of such nanostructures are determined not only by the shape and dimensions of the structures but also by their spatial arrangement. Here, we demonstrate the generation of vivid colors from nanostructures composed of spatially disordered metalo-dielectric (In/InP) nanopillar arrays. The nanopillars are formed by a singlestep, ion-sputtering-assisted, self-assembly process that is inherently scalable and avoids complex patterning and deposition procedures. The In/InP nanopillar dimensions can be changed in a controlled manner by varying the sputter duration, resulting in reflective colors from pale blue to dark red. The fast Fourier transform (FFT) analysis of the distribution of the formed nanopillars shows that they are spatially disordered. The electromagnetic simulations combined with the optical measurements show that the reflectance spectra are strongly influenced by the pillar dimensions. While the specular and diffuse reflectance components are appreciable in all the nanopillar samples, the specular part dominates for the shorter nanopillars, thereby leading to a glossy effect. The simulation results show that the characteristic features in the observed specular and diffused reflectance spectra are determined by the modal and light-scattering properties of single pillars. While the work focuses on the In/InP system, the findings are relevant in a wider context of structural color generation from other types of metalo-dielectric nanopillar arrays.
