Abstract

Spectral splitting is numerically investigated in a metal-insulator-metal plasmonic waveguide coupled with a series of disk cavities for the first time to our best knowledge. The finite-difference time-domain simulations find that, when an identical cavity is introduced into the single-cavity-coupled structure, a resonance peak emerges in reflection dip due to the plasmonic analogue of electromagnetically induced transparency. By cascading multiple cavities into the waveguide system, the resonance spectra are gradually split because of the phase-coupled effects. Particularly, the quality factors of splitting resonance spectra can be rapidly improved with increasing the number of coupled cavities. The proposed plasmonic systems may find potential applications in highly integrated optical circuits, especially for multichannel filtering, all-optical switching, and slow-light devices.
