Abstract

Linear chains of metal nanoparticles coupled with dielectric surfaces support a variety of optical phenomena including traveling and leaky waves of several types. We investigate the chain-surface interactions and show that traveling waves can remain bound to the chain, radiate into surface wave beams, or radiate into space and surface wave beams. Radiation into surface waves may be exploited to create a leaky surface wave antenna with potential applications to surface wave microscopy.
