Spoof Surface Plasmon Modes Modeling Using Circuit Elements

  • Amin Kianinejad
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


One of the important features of the SSP modes is their confinement, which is directly related to their moment. In the first section of this chapter, the effects of different geometrical parameters on the confinements of the modes are discussed. In the second section of this chapter, we propose a model that offers a general understanding of SSP-based transmission lines, and facilitates further advanced engineering designs and optimizations with desired performance.
