Abstract
One-dimensional (1D) surface plasmonic (SP) nanostructured cavity for the sub-wavelength confinement of light is proposed. Since, the significant spatial confinement of the plasmonic structure is needed for the miniaturization of the device, thin silver metal sheet is used to get plasmonic mode of the cavity. 1D plasmonic photonic crystal structure is designed by placing a silver substrate film(εm) below the photonic crystal waveguide of one dimensional array of air holes in Si (εd=11.56 or nd=3.4) slab of finite thickness. TM mode with vertical electric field is investigated and it is observed that the mode remains dominant in the structure. Further, surface plasmonic nano cavity defect mode is studied by changing the cavity length which can be tuned for different wavelengths by changing the geometry of the structure.
