In this study, the signal processing in three-port and four-port plasmonic filter/coupler devices by coherently controlling phase and amplitude of surface plasmon is proposed and investigated. This device is composed of two metal-dielectric-metal waveguides with a strip cavity imbedded in the metal layer. The interference between the plasmonic signals of two input ports is caused by the tunneling effect of surface plasmons in the strip cavity. The functions of signal coding/decoding, encrypting and all-optical logic gates are also demonstrated in this study.
