Abstract

Metamaterials, artificial electromagnetic media achieved by structuring on the sub-wavelength scale, were initially suggested as negative index media for the “superlens” and for transforming electromagnetic space to control the propagation of waves. The research agenda is now shifting to achieving tuneable, switchable, nonlinear and sensing functionalities using metamaterials. We show how engaging the changing balance of forces and plasmonic light confinement at the nanoscale opens up the burgeoning field of reconfigurable photonic metadevices - structures that can be controlled by external electric and magnetic signals and by light by engaging Coulomb, Ampere and Lorentz forces.
