Author Affiliations +
This paper discusses two aspects of current interest in surface plasmon photonics: the surface sensitivity of surface plasmon waveguides, and the amplification of surface plasmon-polaritons via propagation through an optically pumped dipolar gain medium incorporated into one of the claddings. Physically realisable structures are considered in both cases.
