Abstract

The polarization- and angle-resolved optical responses of the anapole mode in silicon nano-disks array have been experimentally and theoretically investigated. The good agreement between measured data and simulations yields to a consistent description of the anapole mode behavior that exhibits different features for TE or TM polarization excitation. Scattering matrix calculation allows us to disentangle scattered and diffused light contributions and to provide a quantitative estimation of the absorbance enhancement associated with 2D excitation of the anapole mode. We performed the multipolar decomposition of the far-field scattered radiation for both TE and TM polarizations and unambiguously identified the anapole resonant condition in excellent agreement with the experimental results over a large range of incident angles. Our findings demonstrate the controlled excitation of electromagnetic anapole modes in engineered arrays of silicon nano-disks for the development of optical nanostructures with enhanced light-matter interaction.
