Title: Devices based on surface plasmon interference filters

Abstract: Devices based on surface plasmon filters having at least onemetal-dielectric interface to support surface plasmon waves. Amulti-layer-coupled surface plasmon notch filter is provided to have morethan two symmetric metal-dielectric interfaces coupled with one another toproduce a transmission spectral window with desired spectral profile andbandwidth. Such notch filters can form various color filtering devices forcolor flat panel displays.
