Abstract

A concept of an easily tunable device based on hybrid Tamm modes is proposed. The device can be controlled using a high-sensitivity chiral liquid crystal serving as a mirror. The coupling of the chiral optical Tamm state with the Tamm plasmons is predicted. The Tamm plasmons are excited at different frequencies for the orthogonal linear polarizations, while the chiral Tamm state is excited at only one frequency. The properties of the proposed model are analytically and numerically calculated. The possibility of creating a two- and three-mode laser with tunable characteristics on the basis of the proposed model is discussed.
