Characterization of the loss of plasmonic modes in planar metal-insulator-metal waveguides by a coupling-simulation approach.

Abstract

Metal-insulator-metal (MIM) structures have been the subject of great interest as nanoscale plasmonic waveguides. The modeling and measurement of the loss in these waveguides is one of the critical issues in realizing the plasmon-based nanocircuitry. Due to the subwavelength size of the structure, the light injection and the measurement of the loss in MIM… (More)
