Fullerene in the plasmon fullerene cavity is utilized to propagate plasmon energy in order to break the confinement of the plasmonic coupling effect, which relies on the influential near-field optical region. It acts as a plasmonic inductor for coupling gold nano-islands to the gold film; the separation distances of the upper and lower layers are longer than conventional plasmonic cavities. This coupling effect causes the discrete and continuum states to cooperate together in a cavity and produces asymmetric curve lines in the spectra, producing a hybridized resonance. The effect brings about a bright and saturated displaying film with abundant visible colors. In addition, the reflection spectrum is nearly omnidirectional, shifting by only 5% even when the incident angle changes beyond ± 60°. These advantages allow plasmon fullerene cavities to be applied to reflectors, color filters, visible chromatic sensors, and large-area display.
