Abstract

Plasmonics provides an opportunity to develop nanoscale optical devices, where the spectral, angular and polarisation response can be tailored. The aim of this research is to determine which designs prove suitable as polarisation sensitive features, how novel nanofabriction techniques can be employed to scale up the production and in what settings can we use these scalable plasmonic polarising devices to address current nanophotonics challenges. Presented here is a study of potential plasmonics based methods of manipulating polarisation, including converting the polarisation state of a beam from linear to circular with carefully designed cross nanoapertures in a metallic film, strong filt..
