Airy plasmons: Non-diffracting optical surface waves

Minovich, Aliaksandr; Klein, Angela E; Neshev, Dragomir; Pertsch, Thomas; Christodoulides, Demetrios N; Kivshar, Yuri


Airy beams represent an important class of non-diffracting waves which can be realized on a flat surface. Being generated in the form of surface-plasmon polaritons, such Airy plasmons demonstrate many remarkable properties: they do not diffract while propagating along parabolic trajectories, and they recover their shape after passing through obstacles. This paper reviews the basic physics of Airy plasmons in both paraxial and non-paraxial cases, and describes the experimental methods for...[Show more]
