Nanophotonics with Surface Plasmons -- Part I

Abstract:
In this first of two articles on optical technologies that manipulate photons at the nanoscale, we discuss how surface plasmons are analogous to photons and how they may be used to efficiently guide and control electromagnetic radiation. In at least some cases, surface plasmons enable dramatic improvements in the performance of conventional photonic components such as modulators and switches.
