Abstract

The efficient steering of surface plasmon polariton (SPP) fields is a vital issue in various plasmonic applications, such as plasmonic circuitry. We present a straightforward and efficient method for generating unidirectionally propagating SPP beams with arbitrary amplitude and phase profiles by manipulating Δ-shaped nanoantennas. As an example, a second-order Hermite–Gauss SPP beam is generated with this method. The near-field distribution of the generated SPP beam is experimentally characterized to validate the effectiveness of the method.
