Paper Abstract

Light absorption spectrum measurements and the light intensity dependence of the light absorption spectrum of a fiber with a very thin gold film at the glass core glass cladding boundary are presented. The thickness of the gold film is less than the scattering length of electrons in this metal. The absorption spectrum appears to be strongly light intensity dependent. We also observed the mode structure of light propagating through the gold film. Our fabrication process can produce large area very thin metal films that are very difficult to produce by other methods.
