Coherent metamaterials as a platform for passive and gain-assisted photonic devices

We demonstrate a new class of "coherent" metamaterials, where narrow band EIT-like transmission/reflection resonances correspond to a truly collective response of the entire ordered metamaterial array. The resonances appear as a result of coherent excitations of strongly interacting ordered meta-molecules and are controlled by the size of the array.

Coherent maetamaterials provide a promising platform for various intriguing applications including slow-light and polarization controlling devices and the "lasing spaser", which we illustrate in a number of microwave, THz and optical experiments. Also, for the first time we experimentally show that resonant properties and losses in a photonic version of the metamaterial can be controlled through optical gain medium.

Abstract

We demonstrate a new class of "coherent" metamaterials, where narrow band EIT-like transmission/reflection resonances correspond to a truly collective response of the entire ordered metamaterial array. The resonances appear as a result of coherent excitations of strongly interacting ordered meta-molecules and are controlled by the size of the array.

Coherent maetamaterials provide a promising platform for various intriguing applications including slow-light and polarization controlling devices and the "lasing spaser", which we illustrate in a number of microwave, THz and optical experiments. Also, for the first time we experimentally show that resonant properties and losses in a photonic version of the metamaterial can be controlled through optical gain medium.
