Paper Abstract

Phase change materials are used as the recording layer in optical data storage, electronic storage and nanolithography due to the enormous physical difference between crystalline and amorphous states. In recent years, they are demonstrated to exploit in various tunable plasmonic devices, such as perfect absorber, planar lenses, plasmonic antenna, Fano resonance and so on. However, in these researches, the phase change material merely plays a role as a refractive index switchable substrate. In this paper, we study the intrinsic optical properties of phase change material Ge2Sb2Te5 (GST) in the near-infrared regime. A clear insight into the dipole resonance system of GST is provided. The reflection phase retardation and intensity of each unit cells depending on the phase state and geometry are estimated. Further, we introduce the concept of reconfigurable gradient metasurface, which has different anomalous reflection angles by switching the combination of nanorods with different geometries and phase states. The research has great potential in the area of tunable metamaterial device (metadevice) in the future.
