Figures (4)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Three prism-coupling geometries for exciting a surface-plasma wave: I, III, and II correspond to the Otto, Kretschmann, and our geometries, respectively.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Reflectivity as a function of the incident angle inside the prism for our geometry where n0 = n2. (—), (- - -), and (— -) are for t = 2000, 70, and 50 nm, respectively. Note the splitting of the single Lorentzian into two Lorentzians as the metal film thickness decreases. The wide and the narrow Lorentzians correspond to the short-range and long-range surface-plasma waves, respectively.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Dispersion curves of the free surface-plasma waves: Im(β) (dashed line) and t (continuous line) as a function of Re(β). Note the divergence of t for Re(β) that corresponds to the thick metal case, and the two values of Re(β) and Im(β) for each t for the thinner metal case.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

(a) Reflectivity (continuous line) as a function of the incident angle and the ratio of the absolute square of the magnetic fields at the metal surface and inside the prism (dashed line) for t = 70 nm. (b) Same as (a) but with t = 10 nm. Note the enhancement of the optical fields relative to the thick metal case.
