Abstract
Surface plasmons-polaritons (or briefly, surface plasmons, SP) have been intensively investigated as potential information carriers for ultra-small photonic (plasmonic) devices and circuits. SPs can be confined in subwavelength regions, but their propagation is inherently lossy due to free-carrier absorption in metals. Thus, the proper balance between confinement and loss is the basic problem in the design of plasmonic waveguides and devices. This work is devoted to the analysis of waveguiding properties of plasmonic structures in which a homogeneous (bulk) metal is replaced with mutually interlaced metal and dielectric layers with deeply subwavelength thicknesses. Approaches based on effective medium theory and rigorous electromagnetic analysis are presented and mutually compared.
