Optomechanical nonlinearity and bistability in dielectric metamaterials

Optomechanical nonlinearity and bistability in dielectric metamaterials
Optomechanical nonlinearity and bistability in dielectric metamaterials
Optical forces are extremely important in mesoscopic systems: they are increasingly exploited in various forms of optical tweezing, manipulation and binding, as well as for actuation of nanophotonic devices [1]. Here we introduce optomechanical dielectric metamaterials - a new paradigm for achieving strongly nonlinear, asymmetric and bistable optical properties via the mutual interaction of optical and mechanical responses to low intensity illumination.

Abstract

Optical forces are extremely important in mesoscopic systems: they are increasingly exploited in various forms of optical tweezing, manipulation and binding, as well as for actuation of nanophotonic devices [1]. Here we introduce optomechanical dielectric metamaterials - a new paradigm for achieving strongly nonlinear, asymmetric and bistable optical properties via the mutual interaction of optical and mechanical responses to low intensity illumination.
