Abstract

In this paper, we present a low-loss plasmonic Bragg reflector structure with high light-confinement. We show that periodic changes in the dielectric materials of the metal-insulator-metal waveguides can be utilized to design efficient subwavelength Bragg reflectors and micro-cavities. FDTD simulation results of the designed Bragg reflector using realistic material parameters justify that the transfer matrix calculations are adequate for the design purposes. © 2006 Optical Society of America.
