Abstract

We report NEMS-based reconfigurable photonic metamaterials controlled by electrical currents, magnetic fields and light. Our structures provide practically useful solutions for sub-megahertz and high contrast magnetoelectric modulation of metamaterial optical properties and a cubic optical nonlinearity that is ten orders of magnitude greater than the reference nonlinearity of CS2.
