ABSTRACT
The spectral shape and bandwidth of the emission of Er[SUP3+] ions in silica glass around 1.5 μm is strongly modified by the presence of a silver grating. The metallodielectric grating was made by a sequence of ion implantation in silica glass, dry etching, and silver sputter deposition. Spectral enhancements are observed that are attributed to near-field coupling of Er[SUP3+] ions to surface plasmon polaritons that subsequently reradiate at well-defined resonance conditions. Qualitative agreement is observed between these resonance conditions and calculations based on the surface plasmon polariton dispersion relation.

    Conventional plasmonic devices involve metals, but metal-based plasmonic resonances are mainly limited to λres < 1 µm, and thus metals interact effectively only with light in the UV and visible ranges. We show that highly doped ZnO can exhibit λres ≥ 1 µm, thus moving...
