Plasmonics coupling in a twin-core photonic crystal fiber
Date of Issue2011

The plasmonics has twofold influence on the coupler performance. On one hand, absorption in the metal layer is the largest at resonance, which facilitates inter-core coupling and shortens the coupling length. On the other hand, the introduction of metal brings in insertion loss, which limits the energy propagation in the waveguide. However, this trade-off can be minimized via proper waveguide design.
