Paper Abstract

Metallic nanostructures can have strong effects on the polarization state of light and present significant polarization sensitivity. However, quite often these phenomena have only negligible effects thus passing our attention without careful analysis. We show that these effects can be enhanced by using resonance effects arising from waveguide modes propagating along the surface. This enables the use of metallic nanostructures as artificial media components modulating the polarization state of light.
