Abstract

In this paper a novel metal-dielectric waveguide structure is proposed to support hybrid long range surface plasmon polaritons (LRSPPs) with a highly confined mode field. The simulation results showed that our proposed structure has better mode confinement and propagation length compared to that of conventional dielectric-loaded surface plasmon polaritons (DLSPPs) waveguides. This structure offers greater flexibility for the design of SPPs waveguides by altering the trade-off between mode confinement and propagation length. The proposed structure has significant potential for application in highly integrated photonic circuits.
