Abstract

Traditional lattice-induced transparency demonstrations are activated by varying the meta-atom lattice constant such that the plasmonic and lattice modes interfere. Here we report on the observation of enhanced coupling between two eigenmodes (first- and second-order) by varying the lattice parameter in a symmetric split ring resonator design. The higher-order quasi-dark mode blueshifts, introducing strong coupling with the fundamental bright mode for periods above 345 μm. Numerical simulations are verified experimentally and supplemented with a two-oscillator model showing good agreement. Furthermore, larger positive group delay values are achieved in the vicinity of the transparency window with minimal absorption, indicating a strong potential for slow light applications.
