Plasmon induced transparency in a dielectric waveguide

A classical effect of electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) is demonstrated in a dielectric slab waveguide at visible frequencies. Two nano-sized elliptical silver particles are placed inside the waveguide core layer, and their localized plasmonic resonances are utilized to obtain bright and dark states. The destructive interference between the two resonance paths leads to an EIT-like transmission spectrum of the waveguide. The contrast between the transmission peak and dip can be further enhanced by incorporating the Fabry-Perot resonance effect. The influence of Joule loss on the EIT performance is also investigated.
