Abstract

The cross conversion between surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) and quasi-cylindrical waves (CWs) is theoretically reexamined. Except for the CW-to-SPP conversion, we find the SPP-to-CW conversion, as well as the reflection and transmission of the CW, plays an indispensable role in the interaction between SPPs and light via periodic grooves. The completeness of the whole scattering coefficients is emphasized by an SPP–CW model proposed to quantitatively predict the SPP excitation efficiency for any number of periodic grooves.
