Abstract

We report a high-performance silicon-based hybrid plasmonic waveguide that consists of a silicon nano-rib loaded with a metallic nanowire. An ultra-deep-subwavelength mode area (λ2/4.5×105 ∼ λ2/7×103), in conjunction with a reasonable propagation distance (2.2 ∼ 60.2 μm), is achievable at a telecommunication wavelength of 1.55 μm, which indicates that this device outperforms its conventional hybrid and nanowire waveguiding counterparts.
