Abstract

The phase change technology behind rewritable optical disks and the latest electronic memory storage devices has provided clear commercial and technological advances for the field of data storage. Furthermore, new generations of optoelectronic devices are being driven by the merging of optics and electronics, as photons and electrons begin to cooperate in a single material platform. As a part of this evolution, plasmonics and metamaterials bring with them the ability to focus and manipulate light on the nanoscale. Here, the use of chalcogenide glasses in active plasmonic switching devices is discussed with proof of principle demonstrations of nanophotonic switching in the infrared domain.
