Abstract

A silver film perforated with two subwavelength uniform slits is proposed for dichroic directional excitation of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs). Under backside oblique illumination, the SPPs for two work wavelengths can propagate along the two opposite directions or in the same direction. Based on SPP interference, an integer-programming model is established for dichroic directional excitation of SPPs. The branch and bound method is introduced to find the optimal solutions for the integer-programming model, and therefore, the parameters of the structure and illumination angles can be obtained. The field distribution of the structure is investigated by using the finite-difference time-domain method (FDTD) to verify our design. Our theoretical model can achieve dichroic directional excitation of SPPs, simultaneously.
