Plasmonic coupling of electromagnetic energy in hexagonal array of silver nanorods

A cool animation which I reproduced from W.M Saj, Optics Express, Vol 13, 13, 2005 using freely obtained FDTD software (MEEP). It demonstrates the propagation of electromagnetic energy in hexagonal array of silver nanorods due to plasmonic coupling. The source is offset from the center and the energy is propagated in an interesting snake like pattern. For more details about this kind of propagation,  look at the article (W.M Saj, Optics Express, Vol 13, 13, 2005).

  1. Thanks for such a cool post. I really want to see how MEEP can deal with metallic particles. Is it possible to send me MEEP codes for this simulation?

    Thanks in advance,

  2. Hi,

    Thanks for your efforts and time to share your work with us. I am working on SPP in time space. If it is possible can you send me your code?

  3. Hi, I am learning MEEP. Your website is a great place to start as we can get the complete project file and just start working. It gives motivation to start. I am already working on your metal-reflection project. May I get the project file for this Hexagonal lattice PC.

    Many thanks in advance!
