Abstract

We have devised a simple method to determine the absorption and radiative decay rates of surface plasmon polaritons in an Au nanohole array by combining polarization-resolved reflectivity spectroscopy and temporal coupled-mode theory. The dependence of two rates on wavelength has been measured and they are found to agree with finite-difference time-domain simulations. As both absorption and radiative decay rates play a key role in several plasmonic applications, our approach offers a simple and effective means in determining them.
