Abstract

We find some useful and effective approximations of the dispersion relation of the fundamental surface plasmon wave propagating around a curved dielectric-metal interface. These estimations are valid even with a very small curvature radius, which is the case of interest for nano-optics applications, and are validated through the numerical solution of the characteristic equation of the curved interface.
