Paper Abstract

Negative dielectric planar waveguides is reviewed toward silicon nanophotonics from the point of view of two-dimensional optical waves. Excitation, index-guiding, squeeze of optical beam width, adiabatic mode conversion of two-dimensional optical waves are discussed theoretically. The efficient excitation method of surface plasmon polariton is proposed as an adiabatic coupler from optical fibers. This is a gateway from conventional dielectric waveguides to nanophotonics. Low-dimensional optical waves at exotic interfaces are studied for the interface including non-metallic negative dielectrics, negative permeability materials and left-handed materials. Future perspectives toward polaritonics is discussed.
