Light scattering by nonlinear cylindrical multilayer structures

Mirzaei, Ali; Miroshnichenko, Andrey E.; Zharova, Nina A.; Shadrivov, Ilya V.


We study light scattering by cylindrical multilayer structures containing Kerr-type nonlinear materials. We develop a new semi-analytical method for solving such nonlinear problems by reducing the original 2D system by a 1D nonlinear Helmholtz equation. We apply our method for the case of wave scattering by the core-shell metal-dielectric nanowire and show that the nonlinearity allows us to control scattering cross section, which in the resonant regime demonstrates optical bistability. We...[Show more]
