Computational and experimental investigations of angle-dependent light transmission through nanometric cross-shaped aperture arrays in thin metal films are presented. It is shown that high-transmission associated with the excitation of localized surface plasmons within the apertures can be tailored to exhibit polarization- and angle-independent performance.

    Simultaneous excitation of cavity resonance (CR) and surface plasmon resonance (SPR) was observed in the angular spectrum by substituting Ag/Al2O3/Ag layers for the metal film in a Kretschmann structure. Two reflective valleys, elicited respectively by CR and SPR, appeared at different positions...

    Loss is a crucial problem in plasmonic integrated optical circuits and metamaterials. The Er, Yb codoped gain material is introduced into a magnetic plasmon waveguide composed of a chain of nanosandwiches in order to solve the loss problem in such subwavelength waveguide. The magnetic plasmon...

    The terahertz (THz) emission with the maximum at the 3–5 THz is observed under electrical pumping from InN epilayers, where structural imperfections such as nanocolumns, pores, and In clusters are situated with a certain periodicity. This radiation is ascribed to the spontaneous emission...
