We investigate the effect of dissipation on adiabatic nano-focusing of surface plasmons in a sharp metal tapered rod. Three distinct patters of nano-focusing and local field enhancement are predicted at different levels of dissipation and/or taper angles. Critical structural parameters and asymptotic behavior of the field near the tip are analyzed

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
