The plasmonic properties of nanodisk arrays of Pt, Pd, and, for comparison, Ag are studied over a large size and spectral range and analyzed theoretically by an electrostatic model. Pt and Pd nanodisks exhibit broad localized surface plasmons with a higher sensitivity of the plasmon to the disk aspect ratio compared to Ag. Extinction cross-sections are generally about 50% smaller for Pt and Pd. The spectral plasmon positions, line-widths, and extinction cross-sections are well reproduced by the model.
