Electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) is a promising technology for the enhancement of light-matter interactions, and recent demonstrations of the quantum EIT realized in artificial micro-structured medium have remarkably reduced the extreme requirement for experimental observation of EIT spectrum. In this paper, we propose to electrically control the EIT spectrum in a metamaterial for an electromagnetic modulator. A diode acting as a tunable resistor is loaded in the gap of two paired…

Active control of electromagnetically induced transparency analogue in terahertz metamaterials.

This work presents active optical control of metamaterial-induced transparency through active tuning of the dark mode, and opens up the possibility for designing novel chip-scale ultrafast devices that would find utility in optical buffering and terahertz active filtering.

Large group delay in a microwave metamaterial analog of electromagnetically induced transparency

We report on our experimental work concerning a planar metamaterial exhibiting classical electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT). Using a structure with two mirrored split-ring resonators as

Active terahertz metamaterial devices

An active metamaterial device capable of efficient real-time control and manipulation of terahertz radiation is demonstrated, which enables modulation of THz transmission by 50 per cent, an order of magnitude improvement over existing devices.

Plasmonic analogue of electromagnetically induced transparency at the Drude damping limit.

A nanoplasmonic analogue of EIT is experimentally demonstrated using a stacked optical metamaterial to achieve a very narrow transparency window with high modulation depth owing to nearly complete suppression of radiative losses.

Low-loss metamaterials based on classical electromagnetically induced transparency.

It is demonstrated theoretically that electromagnetically induced transparency can be achieved in metamaterials, in which electromagnetic radiation is interacting resonantly with mesoscopic oscillators rather than with atoms, and these results are confirmed by accurate simulations of the electromagnetic field propagation in the meetamaterial.

Metasurfaces, which are capable of generating structure and wavelength dependent phase shift, have emerged as promising means for controlling the wavefront of electromagnetic waves. Finding new ways

Electromagnetically induced transparency : Optics in coherent media

Coherent preparation by laser light of quantum states of atoms and molecules can lead to quantum interference in the amplitudes of optical transitions. In this way the optical properties of a medium

Plasmonically induced transparent magnetic resonance in a metallic metamaterial composed of asymmetric double bars.

We demonstrate that the trapped magnetic resonance mode can be induced in an asymmetric double-bar structure for electromagnetic waves normally incident onto the double-bar plane, which mode

Tunable mid-infrared coherent perfect absorption in a graphene meta-surface

It was shown that quasi-CPA frequencies, at which CPA can be demonstrated with proper phase modulations, exist for the grapheme meta-surface with strong resonant behaviors, and it was found that the graphene nanoribbon meta- surface based CPA is realizable with experimentally achievable graphene sample.
