Paper Abstract

In this article, the feasibility of a programmable diffraction grating based on the interaction of light and controlled interface charges is explored. The diffraction is obtained by stacking the plasma wave modulator/switch, and programming is realized by controlling the densities of interface charges via independent DC transverse voltages as discussed throughout. It is shown that the diffraction efficiency, polarization, and even the direction of reflection and transmission modes can be controlled.
