Remarkable systems have been reported recently using the polylithic integration of semiconductor optoelectronic devices and plasmonic materials exhibiting epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) and negative permittivity. In traditional noble metals, the ENZ and plasmonic response is achieved near their plasma frequencies, limiting plasmonic optoelectronic device design flexibility. Here, we leverage an all-epitaxial approach to monolithically and seamlessly integrate designer plasmonic materials into a…
