If you are interested in modeling optoelectronic devices and surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs), then tune into this webinar. Surface plasmon polaritons are guided electromagnetic modes of a metal/dielectric interface. Because of their strong field confinement and enhancement effect, they have a variety of intriguing applications from surface-enhanced spectroscopy to biosensing and nano-optics.

SPPs can be launched through several special excitation configurations or coupling structures. In this webinar, guest speaker Leiming Wang from Konica Minolta Laboratory will show how to simulate SPP excitation with COMSOL Multiphysics® and the Wave Optics Module, including the prism-coupling approach (Kretschmann-Raether and Otto configuration) and scattering approach (grating coupling). Short range and long range coupled SPP at optically thin metal films; a SPP-focusing lens; and the SPP effect in two optoelectronic devices, organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) and surface plasmon-enhanced fluorescence spectroscopy (SPFS), will be discussed. During a live software demo, you will see the detailed setup of the two SPP excitation schemes in the Wave Optics Module. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A.
