Abstract

In this paper we report the study of the electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT)-like transmission in the bright-dark-bright plasmon resonators. It is demonstrated that the interferences between the dark plasmons excited by two bright plasmon resonators can be controlled by the incident light polarization. The constructive interference strengthens the coupling between the bright and dark resonators, leading to a more prominent EIT-like transparency window of the metamaterial. In contrary, destructive interference suppresses the coupling between the bright and dark resonators, destroying the interference pathway that forms the EIT-like transmission. Based on this observation, the plasmonic EIT switching can be realized by changing the polarization of incident light. This phenomenon may find applications in optical switching and plasmon-based information processing.

The geometrical parameters are defined as the following: the SRR length L1 = 300nm, width L2 = 300nm, the width of metallic arm W1 = 40nm, the size of gap Wd = 40nm, the metal bars A and B have same geometrical parameters with length L3 = 300nm, width W2 = 60nm and the gap between metal bar and SRR WL = 80nm. The thickness of the metamaterial is 40nm.
