We present experimental evidence of the generation of narrow Fano line shapes in planar multilayer
structures. The Fano line shape originates from coupling between a high loss surface plasmon
polariton mode with a low loss planar waveguide mode. The line shape is shown to depend strongly
on the structural parameters that govern the position of the waveguide mode and the coupling
strength, and to be in good agreement with results of electromagnetic calculations.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
