Topologically protected refraction of robust kink states in valley photonic crystals
Recently discovered1,2 valley photonic crystals (VPCs) mimic many of the unusual properties of two-dimensional (2D) gapped valleytronic materials3,4,5,6,7,8,9. Of the utmost interest to optical communications is their ...
Tunable electromagnetically induced transparency in coupled three-dimensional split-ring-resonator metamaterials
Metamaterials have recently enabled coupling induced transparency due to interference effects in coupled subwavelength resonators. In this work, we present a three dimensional (3-D) metamaterial design with six-fold ...
UV & visible plasmonic metamaterials made of topological insulator
Plasmonic resonances are observed in metamaterials made of a topological insulator, Bi1.5Sb0.5Te1.8Se1.2, at the UV and visible frequencies due to the material’s interband transition and nontrivial surface conducting state.
Coherently tunable triangular trefoil phaseonium metamaterial
Phaseonium is a three-level Λ quantum system, in which a coherent microwave and an optical control (pump) beams can be used to actively modulate the dielectric response. Here we propose a new metamaterial structure comprising ...
Planar superconducting toroidal metamaterial : a source for oscillating vector-potential?
We demonstrate the first superconducting metamaterial that can exhibit a profound toroidal dipolar resonance. Quantum behaviour of the superconductor and toroidal excitation of the metamaterial are both necessary prerequisites ...
Spontaneous natural optical activity in disordered media
We theoretically demonstrate natural optical activity in disordered ensembles of nonchiral plasmonic resonators. We show that the statistical distributions of rotatory power and spatial dichroism are strongly dependent on ...
Compositionally controlled plasmonics in amorphous semiconductor metasurfaces
Amorphous bismuth telluride (Bi:Te) provides a composition-dependent, CMOS-compatible alternative material platform for plasmonics in the ultraviolet-visible spectral range. Thin films of the chalcogenide semiconductor are ...
Lorentz force metamaterial with giant optical magnetoelectric response
We demonstrate the first reconfigurable photonic metamaterial controlled by electrical currents and magnetic fields, providing first practically useful solutions for sub-megahertz and high contrast modulation of metamaterial ...
A magneto-electro-optical effect in a plasmonic nanowire material
Electro- and magneto-optical phenomena play key roles in photonic technology enabling light modulators, optical data storage, sensors and numerous spectroscopic techniques. Optical effects, linear and quadratic in external ...
Coherent control of Snell’s law
We demonstrate coherent control of the generalized Snell’s law in ultrathin gradient metasurfaces constructed by an array of V-shaped slot nanoantennas.
