Paper Abstract

We present recent progress in nondiffracting subwavelength fields propagating in complex plasmonic nanostructures. In particular, diffraction-free localized solutions of Maxwell's equations in a periodic wire medium are discussed thoroughly. The Maxwell-Garnett model is used to provide analytical expressions of the electromagnetic fields for Bessel beams directed along the cylinders axes. Large filling factors of the metallic composite induce resonant-plasmonic spots with a size that remains far below the limit of diffraction. Some numerical simulations based on the finite-element method support our analytical approach.
