Figures of merit and modelling of metallo-dielectric waveguides

Robin Buckley
The thesis is divided into two topics. The first is a figure of merit study on 2D surface plasmon waveguides, assessing the trade-off between attenuation and confinement. Three figures of merit are used since there are three separate, but equally effective, ways of measuring confinement. Different stripe geometries are considered in this analysis as well as a comparison between Au, Ag and Al (as the stripe metal) over the wavelength range from 200 to 2000...
