Plasmonics confine the light into nanoscale dimensions much beyond the diffraction limit by coupling the light with the surface collective oscillation of free electrons at the interface of the metal structure and the dielectric. The resonant collective oscillations give rise to an enhanced electron-magnetic field correlate with high density optical states. It modifies the light-matter interaction which results in enhanced absorption, emission or energy transfer. Hence, this photo-response mechanism makes the plasmonic structures to be an attractive study candidate to enhance the function of the optoelectronic devices, such as photodetector, solar cell, and light emitting diodes (LEDs). So far, it is still desirable to develop more unique plasmonic structures and explore their plasmon effects on devices performance to develop new-generated optoelectronic devices. Herein we introduced the research results of plasmon enhanced optoelectronic devices (photo detector, organic light emitting diode, sensors, etc.) by incorporation with different plasmonic nanostructures (zero-dimension, one-dimension or two-dimensional multiplexed plasmopnic nanostructures) and revealed the involved effective photon-management enhancement mechanism. The remarkable performance enhancement of the devices will guide the potential applications of plasmonic structures in next high-speed and high-density integrated optoelectronics and other plasmon assisted advanced devices.
