Abstract

In this work we investigate numerically and experimentally the resonance wavelength tuning of different nanoplasmonic antennas excited through the evanescent field of a single mode silicon nitride waveguide and study their interaction with this excitation field. Experimental interaction efficiencies up to 19% are reported and it is shown that the waveguide geometry can be tuned in order to optimize this interaction. Apart from the excitation of bright plasmon modes, an efficient coupling between the evanescent field and a dark plasmonic resonance is experimentally demonstrated and theoretically explained as a result of the propagation induced phase delay.
