In this paper, we present our theoretical and experimental work on hybrid plasmonic microdisks. The 170 nm wide access waveguide is first simulated and characterized, and shows a propagation loss about 0.08 dB/mu m. 3-D FDTD simulations are then used to investigate the lower limit of the bending radius of the hybrid plasmonic microdisk. Microdisks with radius around 500 nm are fabricated, characterized, and analyzed. The 5th and 4th order resonances are experimentally observed around 1412 nm and 1625 nm. The extinction ratios of the two resonances are measured to be 5.5dB and above 10dB, respectively. The measured intrinsic quality factors are 350 and 110, respectively. Comparisons are also made between the theoretical and experimental results. The demonstrated ultra-small hybrid plasmonic microdisk may find applications in low-power-consumption modulators, nano laser cavities with large Purcell-factor, molecule sensors, and others.
