The enhancement of photo-response in nanometer-scale germanium photodetectors through bull's eye antennas capable of supporting 2nd-order Bloch surface plasmon modes is demonstrated in theory and experiment. A detailed numerical investigation reveals that the presence of surface wave and its constructive interference with the directly incident light are incorporated into the main mechanisms for enhancing transmission through the central nanoaperture. With a grating period of 1500 nm, the...[Show more]
