We observed the reflectance spectra of three different nano-scale array structures of Au-coated silicon nanorods. The trends of the reflectance spectra indicate that the localized surface plasmon modes can be spatially controlled by manipulating geometric parameters, namely the lattice constants of the array. In addition, the experimental results were compared with 2D numerical simulations based on the finite element method. Satisfactory agreement between the experimental observations and numerical results was obtained.
