In comparison with electromagnetic radiation at shorter wavelengths, infrared radiation is non-destructive for many organic molecules. Previous research has established the resonant behaviour of various nanostructures designed to operate in the mid-infrared region and observe the resonant behaviour of organic molecules, with applications in areas such as security screening, the environment and medicine. This paper considers some of the important features of a particular asymmetric nanostructure that is useful for such purposes. In addition, the paper will show how plasmon resonance hybridization can describe the resonance energy levels in asymmetric split ring resonators (A-SRRs).
