Plasmonic Computing of Spatial Differentiation

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We show that the interference effects associated with surface plasmon excitations at a metal-dielectric interface can perform spatial differentiation. Utilizing it, we experimentally demonstrate edge detection of images without any Fourier lens. This work points to a simple yet powerful mechanism for optical analog computing at the nanoscale.
