Surface plasma (SPs)
Attracted a lot of research attention in recent years, because of its ability to break the classical diffraction limit to control the optical fraction
SPs exists in the form of a surface plasma excitation (SPPs)
On the extended interface between metal and dielectric or local surface plasma (LSPs)
On limited metal particles
Research on the generation and control of SPs has been extended from the optical field to microwave and tahertz (THz)
Thanks to the pioneering work of Pendley. .
These surface patterns on a structured metal surface are widely referred to as the designer or the spool SPs.
These masked plasma structures not only have similar field-limiting and non-field-limiting capabilities
The diffraction limit is the limit of the optical SPs, but due to its millimeter size, it can also be flexibly controlled by adjusting the geometric parameters of the pattern.
While most of these studies focus on the propagation of spooling SPPs, recently, the use of spooling plasma combos has demonstrated that spooling LSPs.
The design of the broadband passband filter usually adopts the SPPs wave catheter.
In a variety of plasma wave tubes, metal-insulator-metal (MIM)
The wave duct allows highly restricted SPPs modes to travel under sharp bends with lower additional transmission loss and simple manufacturing techniques.
Then, a MIM optical waveguide based on the simulation of plasma excitation element is proposed.
At microwave frequency, a broadband passband filter based on spoof MIM optical waveguide is studied.
However, in order to input the energy and extract the signal from the functional plasma device through the transmission line, the effective conversion between spoof SPPs and guided waves is necessary.
Therefore, the length of these broadband filters in the direction of propagation is usually several wavelengths.
Although the LSPs cavity is compact in structure, they are usually used to implement narrow band filters for asymmetric teeth
Shape structure, injection molding nano disk cavity, corrugated ring cavity, etc.
In addition, by controlling the coupling between SPPs particles and SPPs wave ducts, a narrow band suppression filter is proposed.
In order to broaden the working frequency band, different structures such as symmetric multipleteeth-
Shape structure, metal rod loaded into the stub, gradient plasma resonance chain, Super
Thin periodic corrugated metal bands with defective units, etc.
However, this method will not only increase the length of the filter, but also bring additional transmission losses.
Also, most of the plasma filters mentioned above have a Lorentzian-

Numerical and practical verification shows the compact and broadband through-band plasma filter based on corrugated metal ion ring cavity.
Unlike almost all of the above filters, the resonance wavelength of these filters is usually changed by modifying the geometric parameters of the cavity, applying a new regulation mechanism, the transmission band including four-pole mode and six-pole mode is broadened.
The results show that the spoof LSPs resonance mode can be effectively tuned by selecting the appropriate length in the input and output coupling regions.
