PIER Journals are a family of journals supported by the PhotonIcs and Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS), which has become a major symposium in the area related to photonics and electromagnetics. The scope includes all aspects of electromagnetic theory plus its wide-ranging applications. Hence, it includes topics motivated by mathematics, sciences as well as topics inspired by advanced technologies. The spectrum ranges from very low frequencies to ultra-violet frequencies. The length scale spans from nanometer length scale to kilometer length scale. The physics covers the classical regime as well as the quantum regime.
Plasmonic topological states, providing a new way to bypass the diffraction limits and against fabrication disorders, have attracted intense attention. In addition to the near-field coupling and band topology, the localized surface plasmonic resonance modes can be manipulated with far-field degrees of freedom (DoFs), such as polarization. However, changing the frequency of the topological edge states with different polarized incident waves remains a challenge, which has led to significant interest in multiplexed radiative topological devices. Here, we report the realization of polarization-wavelength locked plasmonic topological edge states on the Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH) model. We theoretically and numerically show that such phenomenon is based on two mechanisms, i.e., the splitting in the spectra of plasmonic topological edge states with different intrinsic parity DoF and projecting the far-field polarizations to the parity of lattice modes. These results promise applications in robust optical emitters and multiplexed photonic devices.....
