The limitations of electronic and optical interconnects inside a semiconductor chip could be overcome by the used of plasmonic-polaritonic interconnects whereby information is carried by surface-plasmon-polariton (SPP) waves guided by planar metal/dielectric interface. Investigating the propagation of a pulse-modulated carrier SPP wave when the metal is either abruptly terminated or bent and the dielectric material is air, we have found that SPP-wave-based interconnects can be effective conduits of information.
