In summary, we have investigated the optical properties of planar arrays of noble-metal nanoparticles on dielectric substrates. They consist of nanodisks or nanowires with center-to- center spacings on the order of several 100 mm. Angle-resolved reflectivity measurements on arrays deposited on glass, show reflectionminima with characteristic energy-momentum dispersions, which are explained as being associated with Rayleigh anomalies.
