Abstract

We demonstrate that the introduction of a subwavelength periodic modulation into a metallic structure strongly modifies the guiding characteristics of the surface plasmon modes supported by the system. Moreover, it is also shown how a new type, to our knowledge, of a tightly confined surface plasmon polariton mode can be created by just milling a periodic corrugation into a metallic ridge placed on top of a metal surface.

(a) Dispersion curves for CPPs. Red and blue curves represent those for a CPP mode of the V-shaped groove without corrugation for two different angles, θ = 30 ° and θ = 15 ° . The depth of the V-shaped groove is h = 1.1 μ m and the radii of curvature at the edges are r = 10   nm and R = 100   nm . Grey lines display the dispersion curves for CPP modes of the corrugated V-shaped groove ( θ = 30 0 ) where the depth of the grating is fixed at 30 nm and three different periods are studied: d = 400 , 100, and 25 nm. Inset shows the geometry. (b) Dispersion curves for slot waveguide modes. Red and gray curves are those for the slot without grating. Blue curve is the dispersion curve for a corrugated slot. The period of the grating is d = 100   nm .

(b) Geometry of the ridge structure with a modulation: corrugation period d = 75   nm , width of the ridge L = 37.5   nm , height of the ridge h = 120   nm and the grooves width a = d / 2 = 37.5   nm . (c) Corresponding propagation lengths for the cases analyzed in panel (a).

Electric and magnetic fields associated with a DPP mode. Electric field intensity map is evaluated on a horizontal plane located on top of the domino structure. The geometrical parameters of the domino structure are modulation period d = 75   nm , lateral width of the ridge L = 37.5   nm , height h = 120   nm , and the grooves’ width a = d / 2 . The operating wavelength is λ = 1.5 μ m . The definition of the Cartesian axes is also depicted.
