In this paper, we report the analysis of a concentric circular ring plasmonic optical antenna (POA) array using a simple lumped coupled circuit (LCC) model. The currents in the circular rings of the POA array and their mutual couplings are analyzed using the LCC model. The results agree well with the numerical simulation using CST’s Microwave Studio®. The LCC model reveals the mutual couplings between the antenna rings. It is found that the mutual couplings are not only between the adjacent antenna rings, but also involve their second (2nd) nearest or farther neighbors. Since the near-fields of the optical antennas are related to the currents in the optical antennas, the LCC model provides a useful tool for the analysis of the near-field and their mutual interactions in the circular ring POA array.
