The SPPs propagation on curved metal-dielectric interface is simulated by FDTD(finite-difference time-domain) method. The propagation loss, the transmittance and the reflection coefficients of SPPs on curved metal-dielectric interface with different radius of curvature is presented. The results shows the radiation loss is the key factor for the SPPs propagation when the propagation area is the same order as the wavelength, and the reflection coefficient is so small that it is ignorable. The critical situation when the radius is zero is also analyzed and the reflection coefficient is much larger than the former situation; for the transmittance, different electronic field components play different roles.
The general role of the surface plasmons in the transmission of
the metallic grating with narrow slits has been numerical
described using the finite difference time domain method.
Different parameters of grating have been used in the numerical
simulation. It is concluded that whether the transmission peak of
the SP resonance emerges or not does not depend on the SP
travelling on the grating surface. The grating depth and the width
of slit really give a dominant influence on the energy
transmission for the SP resonance.
A new proposal for biological or microfluidic detection based on super-resolution near-field structure (Super-RENS) proposed by Tominaga is described. The mechanism of the near-field structure we proposed to image microfluid is very similar to near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM). In this paper, we describe our simulation model and results of the electric field distribution in the near field zone and readout signals from the near-field structure to image microfluid. Calculations have demonstrated that the near-field structure can be applied in biomedicine to detect tracing element or image microfluid etc with a high spatial resolution beyond the diffraction limit.
We report the near-field investigation on azobenzene contained polymer films using scanning near-field optical microscopy. Nanometer scale dots and lines were inscribed on these films, and the topographies and transmitting images of these patterns could be obtained at the same time. The transmitting images were in agreements with the topographies, and it proved that trans-cis isomerization of the azobenzene moieties in the illuminated area induced both surface relief and anisotropy. The experimental results helped to discover the mechanism of the photo induced surface relief and anisotropy, and the agreement between the transmitting images and the topographies could be applied in pure optical writing/reading in high-density data storage.
The interference of the surface plasmons polaritons (SPPs),
localized SPPs, has been numerical analyzed by 2D finite
difference time domain (FDTD) method. The near-field distributions
of the localized SPPs have been presented. It is found that the
quality of the output is not always good with strong interaction
of the SPPs in super-RENS. It is also found that the near-field
distribution and the output are almost changeless when the regions
of the dark stripes have been adjusted.
In this paper, an off-axis holographic lens with the focal length of about 70mm is recorded in the azobenzene liquid crystal polymer film (azo-LCP) by 532nm YbVO<sub>4</sub> double-frequency lasers and is reconstructed by a 633nm He-Ne laser. The particularity and main advantage of the work consists in writing and reading out the hologram at the same place, without moving, post-exposure adjusting or chemical processing. The converging and imaging property of the holographic lens is measured and analyzed.
