This study proposes the time-evolved plasmonic photonic Bloch oscillations (PBOs) in a composite metal-insulator-metal (CMIM) waveguide structure. This device contains two kinds of MIM waveguide with different thickness of the insulator gaps. The time-resolved plasmonic PBO motion in this CMIM waveguide can be observed by introducing a linearly graded dielectric material. The ray trajectory results from the Hamiltonian optics are consistent with the finite-difference time-domain simulation results.
