Abstract

The coherent transport of surface plasmons with nonlinear dispersion relations on a metal nanowire coupled to two-level emitters is investigated theoretically. Real-space Hamiltonians are used to obtain the transmission and reflection spectra of the surface plasmons. For the single-dot case, we find that the scattering spectra can show completely different features due to the non-linear quadratic dispersion relation. For the double-dot case, we obtain the interference behavior in transmission and reflection spectra, similar to that in resonant tunneling through a double-barrier potential. Moreover, Fano-like line shape of the transmission spectrum is obtained due to the quadratic dispersion relation. All these peculiar behaviors indicate that the dot-nanowire system provides a one-dimensional platform to demonstrate the bandgap feature widely observed in photonic crystals.

(a) Schematic view of the model: a silver nanowire coupled to two QDs. (b) Dispersion relations of the nanowire surface plasmons for the modes n = 0 to n = 3 [17, 18]. The unit for the axes are Ω =ω/ωp , and K = kc/ωp . This figure is for the case of R = 0.1, where Rωpa/c is the effective radius of the QD, which is roughly equal to 53.8 nm. Here, the separation between QDs and nanowire is 10.76 nm.

Transmission (solid black) and reflection (dashed red) spectra of the double-QD case with δ 1 = 0, δ 2 = -0.05, d = 0, and g 1 = 1 for different coupling (a) g 2 = 1, (b) g 2 =0.5, and (c) g 2 = 0.1 between SP and QD2; (d) is for g 2 = 0.1 in a small scale of K. In plotting this figure, δ 1 and δ 2 are both in unit of 10-4 ωp , g is in unit of 104ωpc/4π , and d is in unit of c/ωp .
