This paper gives a review for our recent progress on SOI (Silicon-on-insulator)-compatible hybrid nanoplasmonic waveguides which enables a nano-scale light confinement as well as relatively long-distance guided-wave propagation. The strong polarization dependence of silicon hybrid nanoplasmonic waveguides makes it promising to realize on-chip polarization-handling devices with utlrasmall footprints, which is also summarized. Finally, energyefficient thermal-tuning is presented as an example to show the potential of using silicon hybrid nanoplasmonic waveguides as a promising platform to transfer and process both photonic and electronic signals along the same integrated circuit.
