Chapter 3 Frequency-domain methods for modeling plasmonics

3.1 Introduction

The rapid development of research on plasmonics in recent years has led to numerous interesting applications, and many plasmonic nanostructures have been designed and fabricated to achieve novel functionalities and/or better performance. For example, optical antennas are used for biochemical sensing [14], plasmonic waveguides have been proposed for on-chip optical communications [5], and metamaterials are under consideration for subwavelength imaging [6]. Most of those plasmonic nanostructures are complicated, so we cannot find analytical solutions for them. Therefore numerical modeling methods are the only choice when it comes to device modeling and structural ...
