Outline

  • Introduction: Plasmonic waveguides

    • Why plasmonic waveguides?

    • Different kinds of Plasmonic waveguides

  • Modal analysis of a plasmonic waveguide (a periodic array comprised of nanorods)

  • Analysis of a finite chain array

  • Conclusion


Plasmonic Waveguides

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


Plasmonic Waveguide

Different Kinds of

  • Metallic wires1

  • Chains of metallic nanoparticles:

    • A chain array of cubes 2

    • A chain array of spheres 3

    • A chain array of nanorods (here)

  • Channel plasmon-polariton waveguides

  • Wedge plasmon-polariton 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.


Thank you!


Analysis of a finite chain array

  • Excitation of the computed modes in a finite array of nanorods with plane wave

Longitudinal Mode

Both longitudinal and transverse modes

are propagating.

  • 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.
