Abstract

Plasmonic electromagnetically-induced transparency (EIT) can be excited by a single optical field unlike EIT in atom system, since the coupling between the bright and the dark modes is inherently induced through the near-field interaction in metamaterials. As a result, the complexity of the experimental realization can be reduced significantly, while the tunability is lost inevitably. We suggest a scheme that the plasmonic EIT is possible to be actively manipulated even by the single optical field. The bright and the dark modes are selective to be either coupled or uncoupled, depending on the angle of incidence. Even though the mechanical control has the disadvantage for high-speed applications, it paves the way for active manipulation of plasmonic EIT and benefits the clarification of its origin.

Schematic of the unit cell consisting of two bright elements (metal strips distributed on the both sides) and a dark element (two parallel strips in the middle), whose geometrical parameters, W 1, L 1, W 2, L 2, s and dc , are taken to be 50, 124, 30, 114, 80 and 18 nm, respectively. The thickness of each metal strip, tm , is 20 nm. An optical field is incident within the yz plane and its electric component is along the x axis.

Fig. 3

(a) Transmittance spectra at various angles from 2 to 10° with an increment of 2° in the yz plane, as shown in the inset on the right. The region of the transmittance around the frequencies of plasmonic EIT is zoomed in, as illustrated in the inset on the left. (b) Amplitude distribution of the magnetic field at the frequency of plasmonic EIT of 456.9 THz and at an incident angle of 10°. Here the component of the magnetic field normal to the plane of the symmetric structure can be estimated by |H0z | = |H0|sinθi ≃ 4.7×10−4 A/m provided that the electric field of incidence |E0| = 1 V/m and the incident angle θi = 10°. (c) Dependence of both the amplitude and the quality factor of the transmission peak on the angles of incidence from 4 to 10°. (d) Phase change and group index across the symmetric structure as a function of frequency at an incident angle of 10°.
