Paper Abstract

Vectorial modal field profiles and the complex propagation characteristics of Surface Plasmon modes in optical and THz guided wave structures are presented by using a H-field based finite element method. It is shown here that by engineering the metal electrode mode selectivity in a Quantum cascade laser can be enhanced. Additionally, it is also shown that by introducing Teflon coating, the propagation loss of a hollow-core rectangular waveguide can be significantly reduced.
