Abstract

We report on the observation of discrete diffraction in surface plasmon polariton waveguide arrays at a wavelength of 1550 nm . We also adopt the effective index method to reduce our simulation geometry to two-dimensions, predict the spread of single-waveguide excitation in parallel waveguide arrays, and explore changing the excitation angle to detune the waveguides. Our experimental results show discrete diffraction compensation at an angle of 2.2° as predicted by simulations.
