dc.descriptionThis is the pre-peer reviewed version of the following article: AbdelMalek F., Aroua W., Haxha S., Flint I. (2016) 'Light-switching-light optical transistor based on metallic nanoparticle cross-chains geometry incorporating Kerr nonlinearity', Annalen der Physik, 58 (7-8), pp.560-507.E, which has been published in final form at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/andp.201500344/abstract.en
dc.description.abstractIn this research work, we propose all-optical transistor based on metallic nanoparticle cross-chains geometry. The geometry of the proposed device consists of two silver nanoparticle chains arranged along the x- and z-axis. The x-chain contains a Kerr nonlinearity, the source beam is set at the left side of the later, while the control beam is located at the top side of the z-chain. The control beam can turn ON and OFF the light transmission of an incoming light. We report a theoretical model of a very small all-optical transistor proof-of-conceptmade of optical ‘light switching light’concept. We show that the transmission efficiency strongly depends on the control beam and polarization of the incoming light. We investigate the influence of a perfect reflector and reflecting substrate on the transmission of the optical signal when the control beam is turned ON and OFF. These new findings make our unique design a potential candidate for future highly-integrated optical information processing chips.
