Paper Abstract

We consider a gold nanoparticle chain integrated on a dielectric waveguide. With appropriate geometrical parameters, such a chain behaves as a waveguide. We show that the spatial harmonics generated in the sub-wavelength periodic structure can be locally separated or extracted. This is done by playing with the phase matching condition of the coupling with the dielectric waveguide: only the fundamental component is locally cancelled in the periodic structure, resulting in a non-monotone phase evolution along the structure. Additionnally we show that the analysis of spatial harmonics allows extracting more information on the localized surface plasmon mode generation.
