Abstract

We use cathodoluminescence imaging spectroscopy to excite and investigate plasmonic eigenmodes of Au nanowires with lengths of 500-1200 nm and approximately 100 nm width. We observe emission patterns along the Au nanowire axis that are symmetric and strongly wavelength dependent. Different patterns correspond to different resonant modes of the nanowire. From the observed patterns, we derive the spatial and spectral properties of the wire eigenmodes and determine the dispersion relation for plasmonic Au nanowire modes.
