In this contribution we present an experiment demonstrating the generation of non-classical SPPs by exciting them with a squeezed optical light field generated using a bow-tie shaped optical parametric oscillator operating below threshold. Free space optics and end-fire coupling are used for the excitation of long-range SPPs (LR-SPPs) on gold stripes embedded in lossless transparent polymer BCB.
