N2 - We experimentally demonstrate a stretchable plasmonic structure<br/>composed of a monolayer array of gold semishells with dielectric cores<br/>on an elastic PDMS substrate. The composite structure is fabricated using<br/>simple and inexpensive self-assembly and transfer-printing techniques,<br/>and it supports Bragg-type surface plasmon resonances whose frequencies<br/>are sensitive to the arrangement of the metallic semishells. Under uniaxial<br/>stretching, the lattice symmetry of this plasmonic structure can be reconfigured<br/>from hexagonal to monoclinic, leading to resonance frequency shifts<br/>from 200 THz to 191 THz for the TM polarization and from 200 THz to<br/>198 THz for the TE polarization with a strain up to 20%, respectively.<br/>Compared with previously reported tunable plasmonic structures, the<br/>reconfiguration of lattice symmetry offers a promising approach to tune the<br/>surface plasmon resonance with a polarization-dependent response at the<br/>standard telecommunication band, and such tunable plasmonic structure<br/>might be exploited in realizing photonic devices such as sensors, switches<br/>and filters.
