Active control of surface plasmon–polariton waves

Active control of surface plasmon–polariton waves
Active control of surface plasmon–polariton waves
We outline a new concept for active plasmonics that exploits light-induced nanoscale structural transformations in the waveguide material. The concept is illustrated by numerical modelling and test experiments on a gallium–dielectric interface. We also discuss other possible implementations of the concept such as an electro-plasmon modulator, a plasmon detector and a switch that controls one plasmon wave with another.

Abstract

We outline a new concept for active plasmonics that exploits light-induced nanoscale structural transformations in the waveguide material. The concept is illustrated by numerical modelling and test experiments on a gallium–dielectric interface. We also discuss other possible implementations of the concept such as an electro-plasmon modulator, a plasmon detector and a switch that controls one plasmon wave with another.
