Abstract

A hybrid antiresonant reflecting waveguide, type B (ARROW-B) plasmonic waveguide based on the resonant coupling between a guided dielectric mode and surface plasmon polariton wave is proposed. Employing the finite element method, hybrid modes including two bound supermodes are obtained at visible frequencies by varying the environmental refractive index. We investigate the propagation characteristics of hybrid modes, where the significant change of modal power by the symmetric bound mode is observed in plasmonic waveguide coupling suitable for highly sensitive detection of bulk refractive index change. Further, anomalous dispersion is shown by the antisymmetric bound mode which leads to large group velocity dispersion of 3.165×104ps/kmnm and, thus, makes this hybrid plasmonic waveguide ideal for observation of soliton generation.
