By utilizing the vector nature of light as well as the inherent anisotropy of artificial meta-atoms, we investigate parity time symmetry breaking in polarization space using a metasurface with anisotropic absorption, whose building blocks consist of two orthogonally orientated meta-atoms with the same resonant frequency but different loss coefficients. By(More)
Fano resonances offer exciting features in enhancing the non-linearity and sensing capabilities in metamaterial systems. An active photoswitching of Fano resonances in a terahertz metadevice at low optical pump powers is demonstrated, which signifies the extreme sensitivity of the high-quality-factor resonant electric field to the external light(More)
Metamaterials have recently enabled coupling induced transparency due to interference effects in coupled subwavelength resonators. In this work, we present a three dimensional (3-D) metamaterial design with six-fold rotational symmetry that shows electromagnetically induced transparency with a strong polarization dependence to the incident electromagnetic(More)
Recent advances in graphene photonics reveal promising applications in the technologically important terahertz spectrum, where graphene-based active terahertz metamaterial modulators have been experimentally demonstrated. However, the sensitivity of the atomically thin graphene monolayer towards sharp Fano resonant terahertz metasurfaces remains unexplored.(More)

A toroidal dipole in metasurfaces provides an alternate approach for the excitation of high-Q resonances. In contrast to conventional multipoles, the toroidal dipole interaction strength depends on the time derivative of the surrounding electric field. A characteristic feature of toroidal dipoles is tightly confined loops of oscillating magnetic field that(More)
Experimental tests are presented to investigate the stress effect on terahertz (THz) waves with a THz time-domain spectroscopy system. Through the Jones matrix method, an experimental principle is derived according to the experimental system. Experimental results indicate the linear relationship between a polytetrafluoroethylene refractive index and applied(More)
Controlling the phase of local radiation by using exotic metasurfaces has enabled promising applications in a diversified set of electromagnetic wave manipulation such as anomalous wavefront deflection, flat lenses, and holograms. Here, we theoretically and experimentally demonstrate an active phase transition in a micro-electromechanical system-based(More)
It is extremely challenging to control the phase of light at will in free space. Here, Pancharatnam-Berry-phase-enabled, tunable phase control of free-space light is experimentally demonstrated in an ultrathin flexible dispersion-free metadevice. This metadevice enables the broadband conversion of linearly polarized light into any desired output(More)
