We fabricated UVB filtered TiO2 MSM photodetectors by the localized surface plasmon resonance effect. A plasmonic filter structure was designed using FDTD simulations. Final filter structure was fabricated with Al nano-cylinders with a 70 nm radius 180 nm period on 360 nm SiO2 film. The spectral response of the TiO2 MSM photodetector was modified and the UVB response was reduced by approx. 60% with an LSPR structure, resulting in a peak responsivity shift of more than 40 nm. To our knowledge, this is the first published result for the spectral response modification of TiO2 photodetectors with LSPR technique. (C) 2014 Optical Society of America
