Meso-scale plasmons are supported by structures with dimensions on the order of tens of plasmon wavelengths. Metal structures at this length-scale are promising for the design and engineering of structures to direct the flow of optical energy and generate high intensity, localized electric fields. The near-field optical properties of mesoscale crystalline gold plates were examined using near-field scanning optical microscopy with a focus on the effects of modifying morphology and excitation conditions. Excitation of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) at plate edges and their subsequent propagation and interference as radial waves across the surface results in nodes of enhancement of the near-..View full abstract
