This study proposes a method of dynamically controlling the interference pattern of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) within a four-slit structure by changing the phase difference between multiple-incident Gaussian beams. The theoretical analysis of the controlling mechanism of the SPP interference field and the numerical simulation of the generation and movement of both one-dimensional and two-dimensional SPP interference fields are provided. In addition, through simulation, this study demonstrates using the controllable two-dimensional SPP interference bright spots field for manipulating particles in static liquids.
