A selective polariton generator (SPG) design, based on surface plasmon antennae principles, is demonstrated to provide a selective light transmission peak. The polarization-sensitive structure selectively generates and transports polaritons of a desired wavelength through a circular subwavelength aperture. By varying the SPG structure around a central nanohole, we are able to control the peak optical transmission wavelengths via the polarization state of the incident photons. We find good agreement between simulations and experimental results.

    We propose a mechanism of electronic control of the polarization of the light emitted by polariton lasers. An electric field applied along the growth axis of the microcavity splits the ground polariton state into [110] and [1-...0] polarized components. We perform kinetic simulations which show...

    We report the experimental realization of tuning the focus position of a plasmonic lens by adjusting the angle of the incident light similar to conventional lenses. A circular slit in silver film acts as both a surface plasmon polariton coupler and a plasmonic focusing lens. At small incident...

    The influence of nano-holes with three-fold symmetry on the excitation of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) at metallic nano-hole arrays is studied numerically for a quadratic array of rotor-shaped nano-holes cut into a silver film. It is found that the SPP-related minimum of the far-field...
