Coherent All-optical Information Processing on Metasurfaces

Coherent All-optical Information Processing on Metasurfaces
Coherent All-optical Information Processing on Metasurfaces
Exponentially growing bandwidth requirements of our information society introduce major capacity and energy challenges. We exploit coherent control of light with light on Fano-metamaterials of nanoscale thickness to demonstrate an approach promising massively parallel all-optical information processing at arbitrarily low intensities and with up to 100 THz bandwidth. We experimentally demonstrate parallel all-optical data processing, all-optical pattern recognition and image analysis as well as a fully packaged fiberized metadevice performing several logical operations at GHz bitrates.

Abstract

Exponentially growing bandwidth requirements of our information society introduce major capacity and energy challenges. We exploit coherent control of light with light on Fano-metamaterials of nanoscale thickness to demonstrate an approach promising massively parallel all-optical information processing at arbitrarily low intensities and with up to 100 THz bandwidth. We experimentally demonstrate parallel all-optical data processing, all-optical pattern recognition and image analysis as well as a fully packaged fiberized metadevice performing several logical operations at GHz bitrates.
