Paper Abstract

We indicate the ways in which surface plasmon polariton modes may be used to as a means to enhance the emission of light through a thin metallic film. Emitters couple to surface plasmon polariton modes by near-field coupling and microstructure is used to couple the surface plasmon polariton modes to light by Bragg scattering. We discuss both the use of coupled surface plasmon modes and the problems associated with the relative phase of the different scattering mechanisms that can produce radiated light. These concepts are explored in the context of organic light emitting diodes.
