We study the electro optical properties of a Metal-Nitride-Oxide-Silicon (MNOS) stack for a use in CMOS compatible plasmonic active devices. We show that the insertion of an ultrathin stoichiometric Si(3)N(4) layer in a MOS stack lead to an increase in the electrical reliability of a copper gate MNOS capacitance from 50 to 95% thanks to a diffusion barrier(More)
In this work we report on the characteristics of an electro-optical dielectric-loaded surface plasmon polariton waveguide ring resonator. By doping the dielectric host matrix with an electro-optical material and designing an appropriate set of planar electrodes, we measured a 16% relative change of transmission upon application of a controlled electric(More)
We study the propagation properties of surface plasmon polaritons on a Cu surface by means of photoemission electron microscopy. Use of a CMOS process to fabricate the Cu thin film is shown to enable very high propagation distances (up to 65 μm at 750 nm wavelength), provided that the copper native oxide is removed. A critical review of the optical loss(More)
We report the study of a resonant bandpass filter made of a very thin subwavelength metal patch array coupled to a high index dielectric waveguide. The spectral properties of those filters can easily be tuned by playing on the lateral dimensions of the grating. They exhibit high and narrow transmission peaks together with very good rejection of light out of(More)
Standing wave resonating cavities have been proposed in the past to increase the performance of infrared detectors by minimizing the volume of photogeneration, hence the noise, while maintaining the same quantum efficiency. We present an approach based on the temporal coupled mode theory to explain their behavior and limitations. If the ratio of the(More)
