Well-controlled 160-nm period gratings have been fabricated by employing surface plasma wave scattering obtained during laser photodeposition. Extended range phase control and simultaneous period halving have been demonstrated by seeding of second-order scattering in a manner analogous to injection locking and second-Stokes scattering. This technique may be useful for the fabrication of <100-nm period structures.

    We demonstrate efficient optical coupling into metal-insulator-metal (MIM) plasmon modes. Subwavelength grating couplers are used to optically excite the MIM plasmon mode, which is observed with reflection spectroscopy. Coupling efficiencies of up to 28% are measured for insulator thicknesses of...
