Paper Abstract

We have introduce optomechanical nanoantennae, which showed dramatic changes in scattering properties by minuscule changes in geometry. These structures are very compact, with a volume 500 times smaller than free space optical wavelength volume. Through these optical elements, far-field can directly control the near-field of antenna by mechanical reconfiguration. Here we present the functionality of the optomechanical nanoantenna and challenges in fabricating and measuring these devices.
