Abstract

Excitation and localization of surface plasmon polariton modes in metal-dielectric structures can be utilized to construct nanophotonic materials and devices with tuneable optical dispersion. We present a selective polariton generator (SPG) device that demonstrates switching of light transmission based on surface plasmon antennae principles. This polarization-sensitive structure selectively generates and transports polaritons of a desired wavelength through subwavelength apertures. Two of these SPGs have been combined around a nanohole into a new, single device that allows polarization and wavelength selective switching of transmission. The multi-state operation is confirmed by experiment re..
