Abstract

We demonstrated an InP-based optical multimode interferometer (MMI) combined with metamaterials consisting of minute split-ring resonators (SRRs) arrayed on the MMI. The MMI could operate at an optical fiber communication wavelength of 1.5μm. Magnetic resonance occurred between the SRR metamaterial and light at 1.5μm, and the relative permeability of the metamaterial increased to 2.4 around this wavelength. This result shows that it is possible to use new materials with nonunity permeability to construct semiconductor-based photonic devices.
