Ultra-compact contra-directional plasmonic coupler at optical frequencies.
Written in English
The characteristics of a special type of guided wave, namely the surface plasmon-polariton (SPP), have been investigated. We focus on the backward wave propagation of SPPs in two specific plasmonic waveguides at optical frequencies. These plasmonic structures form a unique class of planar left-handed medium due to the single - epsilon material parameter. They are also able to achieve lateral confinement on the nanometer scale, which makes them attractive for nano-optics applications. Additionally, a contra-directional coupled-line coupler based on the guidance of SPPs has been proposed, designed and simulated. This coupler exhibits co-directional phase and contra-directional power flow in the two branches. The contra-directional coupled mode theory has also been derived to reveal the phenomenon of two eigenmodes with complex-conjugate propagation constants. This leads to a high coupling level, short coupling length, and high isolation. Finally, the effects of material losses and finite geometry have also been investigated.

Nanooptics of Molecular-Shunted Plasmonic NanojunctionsCited by: The asymmetry parameter q as a measure of the coupling in SEIRA depends on the oscillator strength of the narrow vibrational excitation and on that of the plasmonic continuum at the same frequency and thus on the spectral tuning ω vib /ω res between the vibrational and the plasmonic excitation. The coupling parameter q and SEIRA line shape.
Plasmonic waveguides have been widely studied to design plasmonic photodetectors for UV to the NIR spectral range (Konstantatos and Sargent, , Liu et al., , Butun et al., ). Replacing the insulator region of a plasmonic waveguide with a semiconductor medium (e.g., inorganic or polymer) is the main method to design photodetectors. Due to its strong nonlinear susceptibility tensor components, zinc oxide (ZnO) provides highly efficient frequency conversion when excited with near-infrared pulses. Three-photon absorption offers an alternative to conventional ultraviolet sources for sub-bandgap excitation of ZnO. In this work, plasmonic nanoantennas are used to enhance coupling of infrared light into photonic Cited by: 2.
Couplers. A fiber optic coupler is a device used in optical fiber systems with one or more input fibers and one or several output fibers. Light entering an input fiber can appear at one or more outputs and its power distribution potentially depending on the wavelength and couplers can be fabricated in different ways, for example by thermally fusing fibers so that . Optical nano/microcavities are nano/microstructures that confine light for extended periods of time, resulting in optical resonances that can exhibit very narrow linewidths and high quality factors (i.e. Q-factors).The quality factor can be plainly expressed as Q=ω Res τ where ω Res is the resonant angular frequency and τ is the ring-down lifetime..

A novel power splitter based on coupled surface plasmons (SPs) is proposed for optical frequency applications. This power divider is an ultra-compact forward or co-directional coupling device. A nano-scaled coupled-line coupler based on the guidance of surface plasmon-polaritons (SPPs) is proposed, designed and simulated at optical frequencies.
The coupler comprises layered dielectric materials and silver, which serve as two stacked nano-transmission lines to achieve broadside coupling. The key property of this coupler is that it operates based on the principle. The nanoantenna coupler provides a compact interface between an optical fiber and a plasmonic slot waveguide for future optical integrated circuits.

Composite metal-dielectric-metal (MDM) surface plasmon polariton (SPP) structures are first proposed to realize the ultra-short optical splitters with simplified designs. The operation mechanism is based on the contra-directional coupling achieved in composite plasmonic slot waveguides.
