Holography with surface-plasmon-coupled waveguide modes.

Abstract

We report on an attempt to use the enhancement effect of surface-plasmon resonance to improve the image quality of a waveguide hologram. With a structure consisting of a waveguide medium sandwiched between a metal film and a hologram, we obtained holographic images reconstructed by surface-plasmon-coupled waveguide modes. Comparison of the holographic images reconstructed by TM and TE modes indicates that the surface-plasmon effect is responsible for better image quality in diffraction efficiency and image contrast.
