We have proposed and investigated two kinds of waveguide systems (i.e., dielectric-dielectric-metal and dielectric-metal-dielectric waveguides) which are able to support low-loss slow-light guided mode at telecommunication regime of 1.55 μm. Simulation results demonstrate that the propagation length of the proposed waveguides is as long as tens or even… CONTINUE READING
