Surface Plasmons
edited by Laboratory Physicist Dean Hudek
written by Qiang Zhang
In this experiment we measure the dispersion relationship of Surface Plasmon Waves.  Upon the total reflection of TH polarized incident light from the glass and air interface in a prism, surface plasmon waves can be excited in a silver thin film locating right at the interface, and its wave vector can be determined by finding the minimum reflectivity point while the light incident angle is varied.
