Abstract

We report the experimental realization of horizontal plasmonic slot waveguides capable of subdiffraction modal confinement at IR wavelengths. These waveguides have a propagation length of 6 λ g and are monolithically integrated with conventional silicon photonic waveguides on the same silicon-on-insulator platform. Direct coupling of light from the silicon waveguides to the plasmonic waveguides was achieved with an efficiency of 30% using taper-funnel couplers to obtain mode matching between the two waveguide systems.
