Bouncing plasmonic waves in half-parabolic potentials

Wei, Liu; Neshev, Dragomir; Shadrivov, Ilya; Miroshnichenko, Andrey; Kivshar, Yuri


We introduce a plasmonic analog for the dynamics of a quantum particle under a linear restoring force bouncing off an impenetrable barrier ("quantum paddle ball"). Paddle-ball-type plasmonic potentials are constructed in quadratically modulated metal-dielectric-metal structures with transverse metallic reflecting walls. We show, both analytically and numerically, the full-wave nature of the phenomenon, including plasmon bouncing and complete wave revivals after interference at the boundary. We...[Show more]
