Controlling split-ring resonators with light

We propose an original approach for creating tunable electromagnetic metamaterials. We demonstrate experimentally that magnetic resonance of a split-ring resonator (“meta-atom” of a composite material) with a photodiode operated in photovoltaic mode can be tuned by changing the intensity of an external light source. Moreover, for two coupled resonators, we show that we can achieve light-induced switching between dark- and bright-mode responses.
