Abstract

A numerical and theoretical study is presented on the exhibition of tunable narrow band coupled-induced transparency phenomenon in a hybrid waveguide-plasmon system consisting of gold twin nanowires array embedded in a slab waveguide. We show that, at slightly non-normal incidence, a properly designed splitting of transmission with narrow transparency peaks may occur at a given wavelength, depending on the angle of incidence. This leads to the wavelength-selective high quality coupled-induced transparency resonance at optical frequencies. By adjusting the gap distance of the pair gratings, the coupled-induced transparency band can be switched between on-state and off-state, which provides us possibilities to develop controllable plasmonic functional devices employing plasmonic nanostructures.

(a) Calculated transmission spectra of the system (p = 400 nm, T = 200 nm, h = 40 nm) in dependence of the incidence angle. The superimposed white solid and dashed lines are the calculated dispersion curves of WAs. “sub” and “air” indicate the substrate and upper interfaces. The curves represent the dispersion relation of the layered waveguide mode for the unperturbed three layer slab waveguide are denoted with prefix “WG”. (b) FWHM and group index versus the incident angle. (c) Calculated transmission as a function of the frequency and in-plane wave vector kx. The superimposed white solid and dashed lines are the dispersion curves of air and substrate light line. The red dashed-dotted line represents the folded dispersion relation of the hybrid TM mode. The green curve represents the folded dispersion relation for the unperturbed three layer slab waveguide.
