  author={I V Dzedolik and O. S. Karakchieva},
  journal={arXiv: Optics},
We consider the linear and nonlinear models of generation of the surface plasmon-polaritons on the boundary of nonmagnetic dielectric medium and nonmagnetic metal. We have shown how the three-dimensional incident wave is transformed to the fluxes of surface plasmon-polaritons at the first and second harmonics of the TM-mode. These "slow" and "fast" fluxes of the surface plasmon-polaritons are formed at the both harmonics at the weak interaction. We obtain that the pulses of surface plasmon…

Self-focusing and spatial plasmon-polariton solitons.

An analytical model for describing the evolution of spatial plasmon-solitons is developed and a good agreement with numerical results is observed.

Transverse instability of transverse-magnetic solitons and nonlinear surface plasmons.

It is demonstrated, both analytically and numerically, that the spatial solitons can experience vectorial transverse modulational instability that leads to the generation of arrays of two-dimensional TM polarized self-trapped localized beams.

Study on the performance of bimetallic layer dielectric-loaded surface plasmon polariton waveguides

A novel structure of bimetallic silver/gold layer (gold as the outer layer) dielectric-loaded surface plasmon polariton waveguides is proposed. The field distribution, mode effective index,

Mass of polaritons in different dielectric media

Some models of electromagnetic field interactions with linear and nonlinear dielectric media based on the approach of polarization and electromagnetic wave propagation in media are considered. It is

Quadratic phase matching in nonlinear plasmonic nanoscale waveguides.

It is revealed that quadratic phase matching between the plasmon modes of different symmetries becomes possible in planar waveguide geometries, and second-harmonic generation can be achieved for interacting plAsmonic modes.

A long-range surface plasmon-polariton waveguide ring resonator as a platform for (bio)sensor applications

A ring plasmon-polariton resonator has been investigated and proposed as a promising platform for (bio)sensor devices. Many applications related to sensitive, miniaturized, and lab-on-a-chip devices

The Theory of Waves
