Abstract

We analyze and design a hybrid dielectric-loaded plasmonic waveguide (HDLW) featuring a long propagation length and strong field confinement, for efficient control and confinement of light in the subwavelength area of λ 2 / 160 . The HDLW is then used to build compact wavelength selective components of high optical performance, including ring resonators (RR) and add-drop filters (ADF). In particular, we demonstrate RRs having a small ring radius of 2 μm , a low transmission loss of 0.8 dB , a high extinction ratio of 21 dB , and a free spectral range of 66 nm . Moreover, an ADF with a ring radius of 2 μm features a 12 dB extinction ratio, a transmission loss of 0.9 dB , and a channel isolation level of 10 dB at the resonant wavelength. The compact footprint and superior performance of these plasmonic components make them promising building blocks for future nanoscale electronic-photonic integrated circuits for data communication and sensing applications.
