Channel plasmon-polariton in a triangular groove on a metal surface

Pile, David F. P. & Gramotnev, Dmitri K. (2004) Channel plasmon-polariton in a triangular groove on a metal surface. Optics Letters, 29(10), pp. 1069-1071.


One-dimensional localized plasmons (channel polaritons) guided by a triangular groove on a metal substrate are investigated numerically by means of finite-difference time-domain algorithm. Dispersion, existence conditions, and dissipation of these waves are analyzed. In particular, it is demonstrated that the localization of the predicted plasmons in acute grooves may be substantially stronger than what is allowed by the diffraction limit. As a result, the predicted waves may be of a significant importance for the development of new sub-wavelength waveguides and interconnectors for nano-optics and photonics.

263 citations in Scopus
243 citations in Web of Science®
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.
