Abstract
Focusing of terahertz (THz) surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) excited by linearly and circularly polarized THz radiation is investigated experimentally and theoretically. A high-speed THz-SPPs imaging system is built up to measure both the amplitude and phase of the excited THz-SPPs. For the horizontally polarized THz radiation, the THz-SPPs will be focused in the centre of the semicircular slit and the phase images reveals a π/2 Gouy phase shift though the focal spot of THz-SPPs. With the illumination of vertically polarized THz radiation, the focal spot in the centre will split into two focal spots in the y-direction. For the circularly polarized incident THz radiation, the focal spot of THz-SPPs will shift upward or downward in the y-direction. FDTD simulations are performed and compared with the experimental results. A good agreement between experimental results and simulation results can be found.
