A Tamm plasmon polariton is a plasmonic resonance excited at the boundary between a photonic crystal and a metal. In this paper, a novel approach based on admittance loci is proposed to demonstrate the relation between thin-film structures and the corresponding Tamm plasmon modes. The tunability of the resonance wavelength and optimization of coupling efficiency are demonstrated. In addition, by using different metals to couple Tamm plasmon modes in the visible spectrum, silver has 4.7 times larger Q-factor than gold and 84 times larger than aluminum at 700 nm. The near-field enhancement of silver Tamm plasmon modes could be up to eight times larger than incident EM waves.
