Bloch oscillations in chirped layered structures with metamaterials

Davoyan, Arthur; Shadrivov, Ilya; Sukhorukov, Andrey; Kivshar, Yuri


We analyze the Bloch oscillations of electromagnetic waves in chirped layered structures with alternating layers of negative-index metamaterial and conventional dielectric under the condition of the zero average refractive index. We consider the case when the chirp is introduced by varying the thickness of the layers linearly across the structure. We demonstrate that such structures can support three different types of the Bloch oscillations for electromagnetic waves associated with...[Show more]
