Efficient butt-coupling of surface plasmons on a silver-air interface

Fisher, Caitlin; Botten, Lindsay; Poulton, Christopher; McPhedran, Ross; de Sterke, C Martijn


Butt-coupling of light into a surface plasmon is a simple and compact coupling method with a range of potential uses in photonic circuitry. Although butt-coupling has been successfully implemented in many coupling configurations, the coupling effectiveness is not fully understood. Here, we present a semi-analytical study which models the coupling efficiency of an incident beam into a surface plasmon on silver in the presence of loss using an projection method in one dimension. We find that the...[Show more]
