Abstract

Composite metamaterials containing chalcogenide glass, carbon nanotubes, graphene, and semiconductor quantum dots and metamaterials fabricated from cuprate superconductors offer a range of new photonic functionalities.

Metamaterials with narrow-band responses resulting from the collective and coherent excitation of strongly interacting meta-molecules provide a promising platform for applications ranging from slow-light and polarization control to optical modulation and the 'lasing spaser'.

We show experimentally that the introduction of functional (nonlinear, switchable, gain, superconducting, etc.) media into photonic metamaterial structures provides a powerful paradigm for the active control of their resonant properties and losses, for the enhancement of nonlinear responses and for strong switching performance in devices of sub-wavelength thickness.
