Optically-programmable nonlinear photonic component for dielectric-loaded plasmonic circuitry
- Journal Article
We demonstrate both experimentally and numerically a compact and efficient, optically tuneable plasmonic component utilizing a surface plasmon polariton ring resonator with nonlinearity based on trans-cis isomerization in a polymer material. We observe more than 3-fold change between high and low transmission states of the device at milliwatt control powers (∼100 W/cm2 by intensity), with the performance limited by switching speed of the material. Such plasmonic components can be employed in optically programmable and reconfigurable integrated photonic circuitry. © 2011 Optical Society of America. Show more
