Chapter 5 Passive plasmonic waveguide-based devices

This chapter presents the hybrid plasmonic waveguide (HPW) platform and its components. In particular, the effective mode index, propagation distance, and mode confinement of the planar vertical hybrid plasmonic waveguides (VHPWs) are numerically characterized as functions of dimensions and materials in the near-infrared wavelengths. The chapter demonstrates that the vertical hybrid silver–silica–silicon plasmonic waveguide achieves better propagation characteristics than those of the counterpart silver–silica–silver MIM and silicon-based dielectric-loaded plasmonic waveguide. Moreover, we propose and design various passive waveguide-based components based on the optimized VHPW, including ...
