Abstract

We have fabricated line gratings from periodically etched fused silica on which a thin silver film is deposited that is in turn covered with a silica index-matched fluid. This dielectrically symmetric geometry supports an independent long-range surface plasmon-polariton (LRSPP) and a short-range surface plasmon polariton, and the associated plasmonic band structure has been probed. Coupling to external light is achieved via the patterned grating, and an ultrasharp LRSPP linewidth of 4 nm is observed. The experimental results are compared with finite-difference time-domain simulations.
