Paper Abstract

A two-photon photoemission microscopy experiment with femtosecond time-resolution for imaging of propagating surface plasmon polaritons is discussed. The experimental setup of an actively Pancharatnam’s phase stabilized interferometer is described, and a temporal stability in time-resolved two-photon photoemission microscopy of less than 20 attoseconds is demonstrated. The time-resolved setup is applied to investigate the interaction of a surface plasmon polariton wave packet with a plasmonic beam-splitter. Pump-probe data recorded at times before and after the interaction of the surface plasmon polariton wave packet with the beam-splitter indicate transmission and reflection coefficients of T≈0.3 and R≈0.4, respectively.
