Towards femtojoule nanoparticle phase-change memory

Andrey, I., Denisyuk, A.I., MacDonald, Kevin F., García de Abajo, F.J. and Zheludev, Nikolay I. (2009) Towards femtojoule nanoparticle phase-change memory Japanese Journal of Applied Physics, 48, (3), 03A065. (doi:10.1143/JJAP.48.03A065).

Record type: Article


We report that normal incidence reflection and transmission of circularly polarized electromagnetic waves from and through planar split-ring microwave metamaterials with chiral symmetry breaking depends on the incidence direction and handedness of circular polarization. The effect has a resonant nature and is linked to the lack of mirror symmetry in the metamaterial pattern leading to a polarization-sensitive excitation of electric and magnetic dipolar responses in the meta-molecules. It has striking phenomenological resemblance with the reflective circular dichroism of high-temperature "anyon" superconductors.
