Surface Electromagnetic Waves in the of Optical Range (Surface Plasmon Polaritons – Spps): Their Properties and Applications

Surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) are electromagnetic excitations, in wich electromagnetic field in dielectric is coupled to collective electron oscillation in metal, and propagate along and is tightly bound to metal/dielectric interfaces. First, we present an overview of SPPs in the optical range and their applications in optoelectronics and sensorics. We further present the main research results achived by the author in this area.
