Abstract

Propagation of surface plasmons on gold in the range 2.8 3.5 eV over 0.1 1.6 μ m distances was characterized by cathodoluminescence spectroscopy. Surface plasmons were excited by an electron beam near a grating milled in the gold. The spectra of outcoupled radiation reveal increasingly strong propagation losses as surface plasmon energy increases above 2.8 eV , but little effect in the range 1.6 2.8 eV . These results are in partial agreement with theoretical expectations.
