We present highly ordered Ag nanowire arrays with 35 nm periodicity grown on patterned templates. The optical properties measured using generalized ellipsometry exhibit strong anisotropy. Dielectric functions are calculated by fitting the Jones matrix elements with a biaxial layer model, accounting for both metallic behavior and localized surface plasmon resonances. The amplitude and wavelength maximum of the plasmon resonance perpendicular to the wires increase with increasing wire width and thickness. The dielectric coefficients of 10-mm-wide nanowires show a transition behavior from insulating in UV to metallic above 550 nm. Their potential application as polarization-dependent plasmonic-scattering transparent conductive electrodes is discussed.
