Abstract

We introduce a new class of nondiffracting surface plasmonic wave: the Airy plasmon. The propagation properties of such a field configuration are unique among the family of surface waves and could lead to interesting applications in plasmonic energy routing. The self-bending and self-healing behavior of these solutions is discussed. Schemes for experimental realization and potential applications are proposed.
