We design and fabricate a totally encapsulated VO2/Au/VO2 composite structure which is aimed to improve the tunability of the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) peak. In this work, the structure will ensure all the Au NPs' resonant electric field area is filled with VO2. The modulation range of the totally encapsulated structure is larger than that of the semi-coated structure. To further improve the modulation range, we also explore the VO2 thickness dependence of the structure's LSPR modulation. With the increase of the top layer VO2 thin film thickness, the modulation range becomes larger. When the thickness is about 80 nm, the absorption peak achieves a largest shift of 112 nm. FDTD solution and equivalent model of series capacitor are used to explain the phenomenon. These results will contribute to the area of metamaterial electromagnetic wave absorber and other fields.
