Abstract: Plasmon hybridization between closely spaced nanoparticles yields new hybrid modes not found in individual constituents, allowing for the engineering of resonance properties as well as field enhancement capabilities of metallic nanostructure. Experimental verifications of plasmon hybridization have been thus far mostly limited to optical frequencies, as metals cannot support surface plasmons at longer wavelengths. Here, we introduce the concept of ‘spoof plasmon hybridization’ in highly conductive metal structures and investigate experimentally the interaction of localized surface plasmon resonances (LSPR) in adjacent metal disks corrugated with subwavelength spiral patterns. We show that the hybridization results in the splitting of spoof plasmon modes into bonding and antibonding resonances analogous to the molecular orbital rule and plasmonic hybridization in optical spectrum. These hybrid modes can be manipulated to produce enormous field enhancement (>5000) by tuning the separation between disks or alternatively, the disk size, which effectively changes the relative gap size. The impact of the radiation loss is considered to find out the optimum disk size that maximizes field enhancement capabilities. Our investigation not only extends the range of applicability of the hybridization model, but also provides insightful guidance to exporting the exciting applications associated with plasmon hybridization to lower spectral range.
