By considering a circuit driven by the magnetic polariton resonance, it can be deduced that the resonant frequency is independent of the thickness of the polymer [27] and can be given by
As the light strikes the sensing area, it excites free electrons, causing them to oscillate and generate a highly confined propagating surface wave, called a surface plasmon polariton. This propagating surface wave will in turn excite a bulk wave propagating across the sensing platform.
Polariton An exciton or similar particle coupled to a photon; leading to energy-efficient lasers
If the propagation constant of the incident light in dielectric medium is matched with that of the SP at metal-dielectric interface the surface plasmon polariton (SPP) mode is generated.
Metaspacers can be designed to support different types of surface plasmon polariton (SPP) modes.
Most of these effects appears due to an excitation of Surface Plasmon Polariton (SPP) resonances.
Generalizing the properties of the PhCs to the dispersive media, Rupasov and Singh studied the quantum electrodynamics of a single two-level atom placed in a frequency dispersive medium (DM) and found a polariton-atom bound state with an eigenfrequency lying within the gap of the polariton spectrum [20, 23].

One characteristic of these plasmons is that they can join with a photon to become a surface plasmon polariton (SPP) which can travel along the surface of the metal until it dissipates its energy in to the metal or through radiation in to the adjoining medium - such as air.
of Pittsburgh, Penn., to meld the properties of superconductors and lasers have culminated in a new form of matter, the polariton superfluid.
"The polariton switch unifies the best properties of electronics and optics into one tiny device that can deliver at very high speeds while using minimal amounts of power," said the paper's lead author Dr Alexander Dreismann from Cambridge's Cavendish Laboratory.
