A simple route to flat, large-area, single-crystalline films for plasmonics is demonstrated by sputter deposition of silver onto mica substrates at elevated temperatures. The films exhibit improved dielectric properties and allow more precise patterning of high-quality nanostructures for plasmonic applications.
