We numerically and experimentally investigate aluminum metal (Al), gold-tin (AuSn) and titanium-tungsten (TiW) metallic alloys as plasmonic materials in the mid-infrared (MIR) region using spectroscopic ellipsometry and reflection measurements of gratings. The angle dependence of the specular reflectance of shallow gratings is investigated using a free-beam measurement setup and compared to simulations. It is shown that the deep and narrow resonances observed for all three materials match the associated prediction from simulations.
