Abstract

We demonstrate, both theoretically and numerically, the efficient manipulation of plasmonic Airy beams in linear optical potentials produced by a wedged metal–dielectric–metal structure. By varying the angle between the metallic plates, we can accelerate, compensate, or reverse the self-deflection of the plasmonic Airy beams without compromising the self-healing properties. We also show that in the linear potentials the Airy plasmons of different wavelengths could be routed into different directions, creating new opportunities for optical steering and manipulation.
