A summary of the article is shown below:

The adjustable propagation length enhancement of the surface plasmon polariton (SPP) mode under the effects of the initial relative phase (ψ0) between interacting waves in difference frequency generation (DFG) based optical parametric amplification (OPA) are numerically considered. The waveguide is a silver coated PPLN planar waveguide. Obtained results indicate ultra long propagation length for the SPP mode could be achieved via manipulation of ψ0 in exact quasi phase matching (QPM) case up to 30 mm for initial pump intensity about 66 MW/cm for degenerate DFG (dDFG). For chirped QPM by mitigating the high depletion of the pump intensity, it is possible to enhance the SPP propagation length up to 43 mm for initial pump intensity about 135 MW/cm. In this case ψ0 does not affect the SPP propagation length except around a narrow range of unsuitable phases. The unsuitable phase is [Formula: see text] for exact QPM but is pump dependent for chirped QPM case. Using this unsuitable phase is the key parameter to the SPP propagation length enhancement via controlling ψ0. In this case with a high pump intensity, the pump and the SPP modes interact at longer distances which leads to the SPP propagation length enhancement.
