Why

?

Plasmonic Waveguides

  • Guiding the electromagnetic energy below the diffraction limit and routing of energy around sharp corners
  • Engineering the plasmonic resonances of coupled structures leads to confined propagating modes in comparison with dielectric waveguides

Conclusion
  • The iterative procedure introduced here is an efficient method for computing the complex propagation constants.
  • Single mode propagation with group velocity near to the group velocity of the light and the attenuation constant of as low as 3 dB/71.8 µm.
  • An array comprised of a number of nanorods can be used as a plasmonic waveguide.

The method is based on thermal evaporation of gold onto aporous alumina (PA) membrane used as a template. The gold films wereobtained after removing the template and characterized using scanningelectron microscopy, atomic force microscopy and ultraviolet–visiblespectrophotometry.
