Abstract
Surface Plasmon polaritons are unique waves propagating on metal interfaces and exhibiting special dispersion characteristics which include wave slowing (phase velocity) light slowing (group velocity), fast light (negative group velocity) and even stopped light. Here we track the mechanisms for the light slowing and reversing (backward propagation) in a plasmonic structure based on a dielectric gap between two metal plates. Three major driving forces - which are determining the dispersion characteristics were identified and the role of the unique circular light flow in plasmonic structure is discussed
