Abstract

We strongly couple surface plasmon modes on a thin metal layer via localized plasmons of nanowires to photonic microcavity modes. In particular, we place an array of nanowires close to a mirror and position a second mirror at Bragg distance. The coupling becomes evident from an anticrossing of the resonances in the dispersion diagram. We experimentally determine the dispersion by applying external pressure to the microcavity and find excellent agreement with simulations.
