Paper Abstract

We explore new types of plasmonic nanoantennas hybridized with semiconductor and metal oxide active materials to achieve controllable plasmonic switches. Theoretically, the response of the active material is tuned through the free carrier density, and the optical response of a rectangular dimer antenna with a photoconductive gap loading is simulated using a COMSOL finite element numerical model. We describe the experimental realization of plasmonic antenna hybrids using an indium tin oxide (ITO) active medium.
