Title:
Light Manipulation in Metallic Nanowire Networks with Functional Connectivity
Authors:
Galinski, Henning; Fratalocchi, Andrea ( 0000-0001-6769-4439 ) ; Döbeli, Max; Capasso, Federico
Abstract:
Guided by ideas from complex systems, a new class of network metamaterials is introduced for light manipulation, which are based on the functional connectivity among heterogeneous subwavelength components arranged in complex networks. The model system is a nanonetwork formed by dealloying a metallic thin film. The connectivity of the network is deterministically controlled, enabling the formation of tunable absorbing states.
