Plasmonically enhanced effects on a self-assembled, hexagonal array layer of ~4-nm silver nanoparticles are analyzed using three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain (3D FDTD) simulations and compared against experimentally measured extinction spectra. The effect of particle size, lattice spacing, and lack of monodispersity of the hexagonal array of silver nanoparticles on the extinction resonance was investigated to help determine optimal design specifications for efficient organic solar power harvesting.
