In this paper, we will present the fabrication possibilities developed within our group for obtaining multilayer hyperbolic metamaterials (HMMs). The minimum metallic layer thickness reproducibly obtainable with our current technology is down to 6 nm, while the dielectric layer can be as low as 4 nm. During the talk we will present our approach for obtaining Au layers with better optical properties than the standard techniques. This is achievable by using an adhesion layer whose influence of the metallic properties is lower than the one of the classical Cr or Ti adhesion layers. These organic adhesion layers behave as dielectrics and thus do not contribute more to the metallic response. Since the imaginary part of permittivity of these layers is negligible and the real part is very close to the silica one, their contribution to the behaviour of the HMMs is minimal.The optical properties of Au with organic adhesion layers showing a closer to theory response than Au with metallic adhesion layer as well as a possible explanation for this behaviour will be presented. This technique can be further used to obtain metal-dielectric multi-layers that lead to HMMs behaviour. Both fabrication possibilities and optical characterisation will be shown and discussed during the talk.
