I'm very new the topic of SPPs and have been trying to understand this particular method of exciting surface plasmons using a 1D periodic grating of grooves, with distance $a$ between each groove. If ...
I'm very new to the topic of surface plasmons and I have been reading about different methods of exciting them. There is one method in which a prism is set up to allow phase matching of an incident ...
What is the minimum number of electrons necessary to propagate a plasmon? Is it possible for just 1 electron to oscillate in a plasmon.
Conventional wires become very lossy at high frequencies. Is this because of the skin effect? Plasmon based computer chips, since plasmons can support much higher frequencies (~100 THz range). ...
While reading "Surface Plasmon Resonance," I came across the following: "The resonance condition is established when the frequency of light photons matches the natural frequency of surface ...
