|Title:||Plasmon polaritons in photonic metamaterial Fibonacci superlattices|
de Carvalho, CAA
|Abstract:||We study the properties of plasmon polaritons in one-dimensional photonic metamaterial superlattices resulting from the periodic repetition of a Fibonacci structure. We assume the system made up of positive refraction and metamaterial layers. A Drude-type dispersive response for both the dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability of the left-handed material is considered. Maxwell's equations are solved for oblique incidence by using the transfer-matrix formalism. Our results show that the plasmon-polariton modes are considerably affected by the increasing of the Fibonacci-sequence order of the elementary cell. The loss of the long-range spatial coherence of the electromagnetic field along the growth direction, which is due to the quasiperiodicity of the elementary cell, leads to the splitting of the plasmon-polariton frequencies, resulting in a Cantor-type frequency spectra. Moreover, the calculated photonic dispersion indicates that if the plasma frequency is chosen within the photonic < n(w)> = 0 gap then the plasmon-polariton modes behave essentially as pure plasmon modes.|
