摘要:

Based on full 3D finite element method simulations, the transmission of a dielectric-loaded surface plasmon polariton waveguide (DLSPPW) based 1/4 circle is calculated for a 90 degrees bend model and a 270 degrees bend model, respectively. It is found that the 270 degrees bend model gives almost pure bending loss while the 90 degrees bend model contains additional coupling loss. The models are applied to deduce the loss and unloaded quality factor of DLSPPW based waveguide ring resonators (WRRs) and the results of the 270 degrees bend model agree well with direct simulating results of the WRRs. Thus the 270 degrees bend model gives a fast and simple way to calculate bending loss and it is helpful for WRR design because no wavelength scan is needed.
