Paper Abstract

In this paper we calculate the power lost to the SP on either side of a thin silver film bordered by Alq3 and air. The possible recovery of power lost to the SP modes by means of wavelength scale nanaostructure is investigated. The role of a periodic scale nanostructure in the recovery of this power is then considered by examining the transmission and PL properties of both planar and periodically corrugated structures. It is shown that using the sample geometries choose that only one of the SP modes, the Alq3/Ag SP, may be used to mediate PL emission.
