Plasmon resonance coupling in cold overdense dissipative plasma



AbstractIt has been shown that the overdense plasma in the resonance conditions can be totally transparent to the incident electromagnetic waves, due to the excitation of the surface modes or plasmons. This scenario requires excitation of a single surface mode which is provided by placing a dielectric layer in front of the incident wave. Here, it is shown that this procedure would be complete and more efficient by arranging the conditions to excite coupled surface modes, namely by placing two dielectrics on both sides of the plasma layer. The results show that in this case, the overdense plasma slab could poses high transmittance in spite of the presence of the dissipative effects. In addition, in this case, the resonance conditions can be achieved more easily and efficiently, and can be used for wider range of the overdense plasma widths.
