Nonlinear dielectric optomechanical metamaterials

Nonlinear dielectric optomechanical metamaterials
Nonlinear dielectric optomechanical metamaterials
We introduce a dielectric photonic metamaterial presenting a giant nonlinear optical response driven by resonant optomechanical forces. Being inherently free of Joule losses, it exhibits optical bistability at intensity levels of less than 0.2mW µm-2 and, furthermore, manifests nonlinear asymmetric transmission with a forward : backward optical extinction ratio of more than 30 dB.

Abstract

We introduce a dielectric photonic metamaterial presenting a giant nonlinear optical response driven by resonant optomechanical forces. Being inherently free of Joule losses, it exhibits optical bistability at intensity levels of less than 0.2mW µm-2 and, furthermore, manifests nonlinear asymmetric transmission with a forward : backward optical extinction ratio of more than 30 dB.
