Abstract

Surface plasmon-polaritons represent electromagnetic waves that propagate along metal dielectric interfaces and can be guided by metallic nanostructures, plasmonic waveguides, beyond the diffraction limit. This remarkable capability has unique prospects for the design of highly integrated photonic signal-processing systems. Due to strong mode confinement, quantum emitters located in plasmonic waveguides feature enhanced emission rates, with the emission being channeled into the waveguide modes. In this chapter, we consider different plasmonic waveguides and emitters that have been investigated for the realization of their efficient coupling. First, we discuss mode properties of relevant plasmonic waveguides, followed by an overview of coupling theory that reveals important system parameters affecting the coupling characteristics. We then describe quantum emitters that have been used in coupling experiments and found promising for quantum plasmonics. Finally, several experimentally realized configurations with quantum emitters efficiently coupled to plasmonic waveguides are reviewed.
