Abstract[EN]In this work, we present a strategy for developing epitaxial incommensurate nanostructured Au/oxide heterostructures with tunable plasmonic response. Previously, high-quality single-phase and single-oriented α-FeO(0001) thin films were achieved, which have been used as a template for noble-metal epitaxial deposition. The complex systems have been grown by pulsed laser deposition on two different types of oxide substrates: α-AlO(0001) and SrTiO(111). A one-step procedure has been achieved tailoring the isolated character and the morphological features of Au nanostructures through the substrate temperature during Au growth, without altering the structural characteristics of the hematite layer that is identified as a single iron oxide phase. The epitaxial character and the lattice coupling of Au/oxide bilayers are mediated through the sort of oxide substrate. Single-oriented Au(111) islands are disposed with a rotation of 30° between their crystallographic axes and those of α-FeO(0001). The Au(111) and SrTiO(111) lattices are collinear, while a rotation of 30° happens with respect to the α-AlO(0001) lattice. The crystallographic domain size and crystalline order of the hematite structure and the Au nanostructured layer are dependent on the substrate type and the Au growth temperature, respectively. Besides, the functional character of the complex systems has been tested. The localized surface plasmons related to Au nanostructures are excited and controlled through the fabrication parameters, tuning the optical resonance with the degree of Au nanostructuring.
