The combination of glancing angle deposition and nanosphere lithography is a powerful nanofabrication technique to design regular arrays of plasmonic nanostructures or metamaterials. This method, referred to as nanosphere shadowing lithography, is a simple and scalable physical vapor deposition based on nanosphere monolayers due to shadowing effect. The nanostructure morphology or topology can be controlled by tuning the vapor flux directions with respect to the monolayers polarly and azimuthally as well as by alternating the deposited materials. We have designed and fabricated a series of planar and quazi-three dimensional plasmonic nanostructures with tunable plasmonic response, strong Fano resonance, or large circular dichroism response. If a two-source co-evaporation system is used, alloy or mixed composition nanostructures or even hybrid nanostructures can be created and properties of two or more materials could co-exist and adjusted. Such a simple but scalable fabrication method has a great potential for large scale metamaterial and meta-device development.
