Paper Abstract

This paper studies the role of plasmonic modes for guided-wave propagation of THz/far infrared in metalclad planar waveguides, including metal-dielectric interfaces, dielectric-loaded metal slabs and parallel plate waveguides. The dispersion of modal characteristics of the plasmonic guided waves, such as the effective index, attenuation constant and the field confinement, as a function of geometrical features for different consisting materials and wavelengths are examined. Moreover, comparison is made between the THz plasmonic modes to their optical counterparts at visible/near infrared within the similar physical structures. Peculiar features of each structure are highlighted and regimes of interest are distinguished.
