Abstract

The realization of integrated optical system on a chip requires extreme miniaturization functional elements. To reach this objective, novel approach must be developed to manipulate light with light in small areas and interaction lengths. Here we experimentally demonstrate optically driven mechanically reconfigurable photonic metamaterial exhibiting an extraordinarily large optical nonlinarity. With nonlinear absorption of beta ~ 0.8 cm/W, the nanostructure is 7 orders of magnitude more nonlinear than nonlinearity of semiconductors such as GaAs at optical frequencies.
