Abstract

We performed three-dimensional finite elements simulations of the optical response of holey plasmonic vortex lenses, i.e., spiral grooves milled on a thin gold film with a hole at the center. We focus in particular on the properties of the wave transmitted in the underlying half-space, which is shown to be a relevant part of the transmitted field. We find out that the angular momentum selection rule for this part of the field is different from the one for the transmitted plasmonic vortex, although closely related to the plasmonic interaction of the impinging wave with the chiral geometry.
