Generation of travelling surface plasmon waves by free-electron impact

Bashevoy, M.V., Jonsson, F., Krasavin, A.V., Zheludev, N.I., Chen, Y. and Stockman, M.I. (2006) Generation of travelling surface plasmon waves by free-electron impact At QEP-17 at Photon06. 04 - 07 Sep 2006.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The injection of a beam of free 50 keV electrons into an unstructured gold surface creates a highly localized source of traveling surface plasmons with spectrum centered around 1.8 eV. The plasmons were detected by a controlled decoupling into Iight with a grating at a distance from the excitation point.The dominant contribution to the plasmon generation appears to come from the recombination of d-band holes created by the electron beam excitation.
