Paper Abstract

The objective of this study was to control the transmission, dispersion and, eventually, the nonlinearity of an optical fiber by intercepting and manipulating the evanescent field extending from the core to the cladding with a variety of plasmonic and metamaterial nanostructures. The access to evanescent waves is enabled by placing the core close to the flat surface of the cladding in the so-called D-shaped fiber design. In the first phase of the project, reported here, the numerical simulations of D-shaped fibers with deposited metal (Au) have been performed. We, furthermore, demonstrated that the fiber transmission can be controlled by highly concentrated rhodamine 6G molecules deposited onto the fiber’s flat surface.
