Gold, silver, platinum and palladium typically crystallize with the face-centred cubic structure. Here we report the high-yield solution synthesis of gold nanoribbons in the 4H hexagonal polytype, a previously unreported metastable phase of gold. These gold nanoribbons undergo a phase transition from the original 4H hexagonal to face-centred cubic structure(More)
We numerically report the submicrometer radius (0.5 μm) and high confinement (mode area ~λ(2)/1200) plasmonic ring resonators for both all-pass and add-drop filters based on the hybrid metal-oxide-semiconductor (Ag-SiO(2)-Si) waveguide platform. The best tradeoff between the propagation length and the confinement of this hybrid plasmonic waveguide platform(More)
High performance of a ring resonator and add-drop multiplexer with extremely small ring radius (1 or 2 &#x03BC;m) and a sub-wavelength confinement area of &#x03BB;<sup>2</sup>/1200 is reported. It has been achieved using the silicon-based hybrid dielectric-loaded plasmonic waveguide approach.
A compact and highly efficient tunable and localized source of propagating surface plasmon-polaritons is proposed based on a protruded metal-insulator-metal (pMIM) structure. The protrusion along a segment of the pMIM forms a nanometer gap and allows a low voltage bias to generate a localized tunneling current. The tunneling current excited plasmons can be(More)
In this work, we investigate the one-photon photoluminescence from a system consisting of an Ag nanowire on an Au film with a ~6 nm dielectric spacer that supports a localized resonance known as the gap plasmon mode. Although the Ag nanowire and Au film exhibit weak photoluminescence on their own, the combined system produces an enhanced PL emission. Our(More)
