To answer this we need to know just a little more about what surface plasmons are. for example with adjacent molecules. Professor William L.

Given that surface plasmons have such short propagation distances.4 Introduction to topic With this project we set out to answer one question – is a new kind of photonics based on surface plasmons viable? Surface plasmons are a way of guiding light. Surface plasmons (SP) are electromagnetic (optical) modes that arise from the interaction between light and the mobile conduction electrons in the surface of a metal. • The concentrated optical field can also be exploited to confine light to sub-wavelength spaces. University of Exeter Tel: Stocker Road. • The concentrated optical field means that if light is first coupled to a surface plasmon. well below the usual diffraction limit.uk/research/emag/surface/ 1. many tens of kilometres.

These advantages are very appealing – but there is a serious problem that if it could not be overcome would have prevented any chance of exploiting the advantages that surface plasmons have to offer.

An example of how we harnessed this effect is in demonstrating enhanced optical non-linear effects by using surface plasmons (deliverable 10).

We wanted to show that one could use nanofabrication techniques to provide sufficient control over the structure of the metal at the nanometre scale so that functionality could be achieved before the energy in the surface plasmon was dissipated. These aspects are summarised in figure 1. Furthermore. To incorporate surface plasmons into any kind of device architecture one needs to be able to do three things. new research groups and commercial activity in surface plasmon-based photonics all show that this is an area of rapid growth (see deliverable 19).The same light-matter interaction that leads to the optical field being concentrated in the vicinity of the metal also leads to a concentration of field inside the surface of the metal. so attractive are the possibilities that it is already being actively pursued by researchers and technologists around the world. and couple light back out from surface plasmons to light. and has helped Europe to stay at the forefront of this fast moving area. We are pleased to report that we were successful in our aim. control and collect surface plasmons. Further we demonstrated a number of concepts through proofin-principle experiments that have helped shape the view not just of the specialized community in which we work. Through our work we have been able to take a leading role in many of these activities. propagate and manipulate surface plasmons. The rapidly increasing number of scientific publications. It was this loss that threatened to hold back the full exploration of plasmons in photonics. which is now known as plasmonics. Despite their every-day reflective appearance. We had the good fortune to receive funding for this project at a crucial time. and we developed new computational models that will enable design tools to be developed. indeed. It is also clear that the SPP-STREP project has been an important part of this development. and that surface plasmon-based photonics is viable. Based on our previous work we thought this problem could be overcome. it is clear that this topic. 1. has emerged as an important new topic in science and technology with the potential to have a strong impact in fields as diverse as data storage and health care. conferences. a time that has maximised the impact of the work we have carried out. metals do absorb some light – this absorptive character metal means that surface plasmons therefore have an associated loss.5 Work performed during the project (2004-2006) In the project we demonstrated experimentally that one can efficiently launch.

One of the devices that has become the subject of a multinational/multimillion euro project of its own is the light-emitting diode. Figure 8 shows a scanning electron microscope picture of the structure. The upper panels (a) show the structure that has a metallic film with a grating profile on both top and bottom metal surfaces. Within the SPP project we pursued organic light-emitting diode with a view to exploiting surface plasmons. The lower panel (b) shows the structure for which only the top surface of the metal is textured.1.

This time we used electron-beam lithography to produce the structures. SEM pictures of the samples used in the experiment (right). We have shown that this lost power can be recovered in devices that are fabricated with the addition periodic nanostructure that enables the SP modes to be coupled to light. This technique is complimentary to focussed ion-beam milling and better suited to nano-sized structures that are made of metal rather than formed by the removal of metal. These devices are of increasing commercial importance.Surface Plasmon Devices. and comprises an array of metallic dots whose collective effect is to Bragg scatter surface plasmons in different directions according to their wavelength. The structure we used was based around the concept of a plasmon crystal. Schematic of two light-emitting structures (left).3 WP3 .

We found that structure (a) is an order of magnitude more efficient in coupling surface plasmons to light.

We should not finish this section without mentioning that one of the prime responsibilities of project management has been to ensure that our results are published and communicated to as wide a relevant audience as possible – this we have succeeded in doing. Further evidence of this came from our ‘Open to Industry’ workshop which helped disseminate the results of our project to a number of key commercial organisations in Europe.
