We present unique characteristics of subwavelength surface plasmon polaritons in a periodically coupled nanowell structure. The nanowell structure offers high quality internal surface plasmon resonance for sensing applications. Calculated FWHM of the transmission peak is 6 nm and the optical transmission is close to 100% at the resonant wavelength of 815.8… CONTINUE READING
