Abstract
We propose two dimensional waveguide composed of silver rods in hexagonal lattice where coupling of surface plasmons is responsible for transport of energy. We examine guiding properties of this structure for lattice constant 200 nm, diameter of rods 100 nm and wavelength λ = 500 nm using Finite Difference Time Domain method. Electromagnetic wave is guided for transverse magnetic mode (light polarized perpendiculary to rods). Estimated attenuation factor is a = 5.63 dB/μm and group velocity of the signal is vg=0.86 c. Interference pattern observed along the waveguide can be explained as standing wave created by reflection from edge of the structure. From period of this standing wave we calculate that phase velocity is vp = (6.4 ± 0.1) c. Transverse electric mode when light is polarized parallel to rods is not guided in the structure.
