Paper Abstract

We demonstrate integrated plasmonic devices on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) substrate for photon-plasmon conversion and plasmonic mode transformation at near-infrared frequency. The plasmonic junction converts photons to surface plasmons and then back to photons with 7.35 dB conversion loss, and has successfully focused multimode plasmonic propagation to deep subwavelength (80 nm by 50 nm) single mode propagation with 2.28 dB/μm propagation loss. The integration approach leads to a robust and versatile platform for 3D nanoplasmonic gauges potentially functional in ultra-fast communications and optical sensing.
