Polarization tunable selective polariton generator

Abstract
A selective polariton generator (SPG) design, based on surface plasmon antennae principles, is demonstrated to provide a selective light transmission peak. The polarization-sensitive structure selectively generates and transports polaritons of a desired wavelength through a circular subwavelength aperture. By varying the SPG structure around a central nanohole, we are able to control the peak optical transmission wavelengths via the polarization state of the incident photons. We find good agreement between simulations and experimental results.
