Fibonacci-sequence gratings based on metal–insulator–metal waveguides are proposed. The spectrum properties of this structure are numerically investigated by using the transfer matrix method. Numerical results demonstrate that the proposed structure can generate high-channel-count plasmonic stop bands and can find significant applications in highly integrated dense wavelength division multiplexing networks.
