Paper Abstract

We analyze the scattering of the surface plasmon incident at a planar interface between two dielectrics. By using the scattering matrix technique, developed by Oulton et al. [Phys. Rev. B 76, 035408 (2007)], we calculate the transmission, reflection coefficients and radiative losses for oblique incident angles. We found that the transmission of a surface wave through a single interface between two dielectrics may be accompanied with radiation losses of 10-40 per cent of the plasmon energy.
