Intrinsic optical bistability in nanomechanical metamaterials at milliwatt power levels

Intrinsic optical bistability in nanomechanical metamaterials at milliwatt power levels
Intrinsic optical bistability in nanomechanical metamaterials at milliwatt power levels
We report the first demonstration of optical bistability in nanomechanical metamaterials - arrays of plasmonic or dielectric resonators on flexible nano-membranes. Bistability results from the nonlinearity of the near-field forces induced by light.

Abstract

We report the first demonstration of optical bistability in nanomechanical metamaterials - arrays of plasmonic or dielectric resonators on flexible nano-membranes. Bistability results from the nonlinearity of the near-field forces induced by light.
