Surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) are surface electromagnetic waves bound tightly to metal-dielectric interface at optical frequencies. Research on SPP is an important branch of nanophotonics and has promising applications in imaging, sensing, field enhancement, and integrated optics. One important component for manipulating SPPs is a group of plasmonics launchers that couple free-space waves with these bound surface waves. This talk will cover a basic of SPPs, existing plasmonics launchers and an extension to low-loss launchers with dielectric resonators.
Mr. Chengjun Zou received his Bachelor of Engineering first class honours degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Adelaide in 2012. He has started his PhD program in the Applied Electromagnetics Group of the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2013. His current research is on applying dielectric resonator antennas in optics and plasmonics nanostructures.
