Abstract

A three-dimensional metamaterial nanostructure for realizing all-optical absorption switching is proposed and investigated. The structure consists of dual metallic layers for allowing near-perfect absorption due to electric and magnetic resonances, and a nonlinear Kerr-dielectric layer for actively manipulating the nanostructure absorption. The finite-difference time-domain simulation results demonstrate that, by adjusting the incident optical intensity, the metamaterial absorption can be flexibly tuned from near unity to zero. The all-optical absorption switching structure can find potential applications in actively integrated photonic circuits for thermal sensing, photo detecting, and optical imaging.
