Resonant metallic nanostructures, located at the interface between two dielectrics, can produce abrupt phase discontinuities on propagating light that will be anomalously refracted by following the generalized Snell’s law. In this work, we show evidence of anomalous refraction arising when such an interface is nano-patterned with self-assembled bent gold nano-wires having sub-wavelength periodicity.
