Abstract

Photonic components based on structured metallic elements show great potential for device applications where field enhancement and confinement of the radiation on a subwavelength scale is required. In this paper, we report on a detailed study of a prototypical metallo-dielectric photonic structure, where features well known in the world of dielectric photonic crystals such as bandgaps and defect modes are exported to the metallic counterpart. Such a structure may have interesting applications in infrared science and technology, for instance, in quantum well infrared photodetectors, narrowband spectral filters, and tailorable thermal emitters.
