Nonlinear control of tunneling through an epsilon-near-zero channel

Powell, David; Alu, Andrea; Edwards, Brian; Vakil, Ashkan; Engheta, Nader; Kivshar, Yuri


The epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) tunneling phenomenon allows full transmission of waves through a narrow channel even in the presence of a strong geometric mismatch. Here we experimentally demonstrate nonlinear control of the ENZ tunneling by an external field, as well as self-modulation of the transmission resonance due to the incident wave. Using a waveguide section near cut-off frequency as the ENZ system, we introduce a diode with tunable and nonlinear capacitance to demonstrate both these...[Show more]
