Back Cover: Ultrathin plasmonic metamaterial for spoof localized surface plasmons (Laser Photonics Rev. 8(1)/2014)



Spoof localized surface plasmons (LSPs) on a planar texturedmetallic disk are proposed and experimentally demonstrated in themicrowave frequency. The designed plasmonic particle shows clearlymultipolar plasmonic resonances, including the dipole, quadrupole, hexapole, octopole, decapole, dodeca-pole, and quattuordec-polemodes. The numerical simulations and experiments are in good agreements. The experimental realization of spoof LSPs on planar plasmonic metamaterial offers great practical advantages in the potential applications.
