We propose a compact combined system which supports compound spoof surface resonances due to the coupling between spoof surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) and localized surface plasmons (LSPs). The system is composed of ultrathin metallic spiral structures for discrete LSP resonances and an ultrathin corrugated metallic strip to guide continuous SPP modes. We demonstrate both theoretically and experimentally that the LSP resonances can be efficiently excited and captured by the SPP waveguide, while the SPP transmissions can be judiciously controlled by the LSP structures. The spoof SPP-LSP combined system may find potential applications in sensing and integrated photonic circuitry in the microwave and terahertz frequencies.
