Abstract

We propose a novel and simple concept of dynamic switching of guided-mode resonant grating filters with quadratic electro-optic effect within a waveguide layer modulated by external fields due to comb-shaped electrodes that also behave as a grating. As the device has subwavelength structure, the performance must be analyzed electromagnetically. We describe numerical simulation with the finite-difference time-domain method specially modified so that it can treat inhomogeneous anisotropic media such as lead lanthanum zirconate titanate.
