Title: Realizing structural color generation with aluminum plasmonic V-groove metasurfaces

The structural color printing based on all-aluminum plasmonic V-groove metasurfaces is demonstrated under both bright field and dark field illumination conditions. A broad visible color range is realized with the plasmonic V-groove arrays etched on aluminum surface by simply varying the groove depth while keeping the groove period as a constant. Polarization dependent structural color printing is further achieved with interlaced V-groove arrays along both the horizontal and vertical directions. Furthermore, these results pave the way towards the use of all-aluminum structural color printing platform for many practical applications such as security marking and information storage.
