Abstract

Temporal modification of femtosecond laser pulses reflected from planar periodic metal nanostructures with resonant excitation of surface plasmon-polaritons is experimentally studied. Spectral time-resolved measurements of the second-order cross-correlation function performed with the pulse duration comparable with the surface plasmon-polariton relaxation time (about 100 fs) show the strong spectral dependence of the envelope of the reflected femtosecond pulse described by Fano-resonance parameters.
