The accurate Legendre pseudospectral time-domain (PSTD) method is applied in this paper to the study of optical behaviors of 2-D dielectric and plasmonic waveguide-coupled ring resonators. Based on its inherent multidomain scheme with curvilinear-quadrilateral subdomain partitioning, the PSTD method possesses superior advantage in fulfilling field continuity conditions across material interfaces, which provides better numerical handling upon circular or even more complicated ring structures. Accordingly, investigations of several plasmonic nanoring resonators of different shapes with surface plasmon polariton (SPP) waves propagating on the metal/dielectric/metal waveguides are made with the aids of a well-fitted Drude-Lorentz material-dispersion model through analyzing their characteristics in the near-infrared and visible parts of the light spectrum. Especially, the racetrack-shaped ring is carefully designed with optimized track length to avoid the over- or under-coupling problem between the ring and input waveguides and, thus, achieve excellent spectral performance.
