Hyper-Plasmonics: hyperbolic modes of a metal-dielectric interface

  title={Hyper-Plasmonics: hyperbolic modes of a metal-dielectric interface},
  author={Evgenii Narimanov},
Plasmon resonance, with strong coupling of light to electrons at a metal-dielectric interface, allows light confinement and control at subwavelength scale. It’s fundamentally limited by the inherent mobility of the electrons, leading to the corresponding non-locality of the electromagnetic response.[1, 2] We report that this non-locality also results in the formation of a hyperbolic layer near the metal-dielectric interface, with a strong anisotropy of its electromagnetic response. While the…

Surface plasmons and nonlocality: a simple model.

A local analogue model is presented and it is shown that spatial nonlocality can be represented by replacing the nonlocal metal with a composite material, comprising a thin dielectric layer on top of a local metal.

Probing the Ultimate Limits of Plasmonic Enhancement

It is found that the dominant limiting factor is not the resistive loss of the metal, but rather the intrinsic nonlocality of its dielectric response, which has implications for the ultimate performance of nanophotonic systems.

Hydrodynamic model for surface plasmons in metals and degenerate semiconductors

A hydrodynamic model is used to study the effect of the electron-density profile at the surface on surface-plasmon modes. The model consists of an extension of Bloch's original hydrodynamic model to

Plasmonic Resonances in Nanostructured Transparent Conducting Oxide Films

Transparent conducting oxides (TCOs) are emerging as possible alternative constituent materials to replace noble metals such as silver and gold for low-loss plasmonic and metamaterial (MM)

Magnetic hyperbolic optical metamaterials

The findings show the possibilities for realizing efficient impedance-matched hyperbolic media for unpolarized light in three-dimensional metamaterials and demonstrate the strong enhancement of thermal emission, which becomes directional, coherent and polarized.

Strongly anisotropic waveguide as a nonmagnetic left-handed system

We develop an approach to build a material with negative refraction index that can be implemented for optical and infrared frequencies. In contrast to conventional designs that require simultaneously

Negative refraction in semiconductor metamaterials.

A comparatively low-loss, three-dimensional, all-semiconductor metamaterial that exhibits negative refraction for all incidence angles in the long-wave infrared region and requires only an anisotropic dielectric function with a single resonance is demonstrated.
