Subwavelength plasmonic kinks, solitons, and oscillons in arrays of nonlinear metallic nanoparticles

Noskov, R E; Belov, Pavel A; Kivshar, Yuri


We consider spatial hysteresis and modulational instability in arrays of nonlinear metallic nanoparticles. We show that such plasmonic systems are characterized by a bistable response, and they can support the propagation of dissipative switching waves (or plasmonic kinks) connecting the states with different polarization. We demonstrate that modulational instability, also inherent in our system, can lead to the formation of regular periodic or quasi-periodic modulations of the polarization. We...[Show more]
