Surface plasmon
The electric field of light guided at a metal-dielectric interface. This diagram shows a "surface" plasmon - it is confined to the surface of the metal, penetrating to a depth of only one tenth of the wavelength (which allows it to pass through a hole samller than the wavelength itself).
