Abstract

Metasurfaces with tunable/switchable circular dichroism (CD) response have great potential to serve as important elements for plenty of advanced applications. In this work, we proposed a novel metasurface absorber integrated with periodic ${{\rm Ge}_2}{{\rm Sb}_2}{{\rm Te}_5}$ (GST) resonators and numerically demonstrated its capability in reconfiguration of the CD effect. Due to the strong chiral plasmonic resonance, a strong CD of about 0.75 can be achieved in a prescribed spectrum. Additionally, the phase transition of GST resonators enables the quasi-linearly modification of CD strength in a broad range (from 0.03 to 0.75). Furthermore, reversible chirality of the metasurface absorber can be realized by controlling the states of the left- and right-hand GST resonators separately, enabling the CD signal to be readily switched between on-, off-, and reverse-state.
