Surface Plasmon Bragg Gratings Formed in Metal-Insulator-Metal Waveguides

  title={Surface Plasmon Bragg Gratings Formed in Metal-Insulator-Metal Waveguides},
  author={Zhanghua Han and Erik Forsberg and Sailing He},
  journal={IEEE Photonics Technology Letters},
We propose and numerically analyze surface plasmon Bragg gratings formed by a periodic variation of the width of the insulator in a metal-insulator-metal waveguide. The results indicate that very good filtering characteristics can be achieved in these plasmonic Bragg gratings. To suppress the sidelobes in the transmission spectrum, we further propose S-shaped Bragg cells and find better performance. By introducing a defect into the grating, a defect state with high Q-value is introduced into… CONTINUE READING
