A single-pixel plasmonic complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) photo sensor consisting of a plasmonic color filter integrated on a CMOS photodiode was fabricated using electron beam lithography and dry etch. The photocurrent measurement results confirmed the three primary color filtering responses that could be achieved in a single layer of nanostructured aluminium film. Finite-difference time-domain simulation demonstrated a good agreement of the reflection spectra with the measured result. This research can lead to the development of advanced CMOS image sensors with low cost and low crosstalk.
