Influence of surface plasmon propagation on leakage radiation microscopy imaging

Abstract

We study in this Letter, the effect of the surface plasmon (SP) propagation and coherence on the images obtained by leakage radiation microscopy. The studied system is a set of nanocrystals deposited on a thin silver film supporting surface plasmon modes. More than 70% of the emission in this typical system comes from non-local emission. The diameter of the influence circle around the detection point is of the order of magnitude of the plasmon propagation length. We also present an original method to measure the propagation length (L-spp) of surface plasmons in complex systems by a two Young's slits experiment. This method can be useful for complex systems with a very short propagation length.
