Abstract

It has been determined by density functional theory (DFT) simulations that the extracted permittivities of ultra-thin crystalline gold (Au) films exhibit large anisotropies which are not predicted by classical models or previous experimental determinations of the dielectric function. The optical scattering characteristics of a periodic array of Au discs are simulated with the DFT extracted permittivity and contrasted against those obtained with several commonly used Au permittivity models. It is demonstrated that the DFT-based transmittance spectra for these plasmonic metasurfaces lead to significantly redshifted results when compared to those predicted by standard Drude and Johnson-Christy permittivity models.
