Abstract


We suggest a simple and efficient way to enhance the bandwidth and tune dynamically the operating frequency of arrayed plasmonic nanoantennas. We demonstrate the capability of arrayed nanoantennas to perform as a bistable optical device, which opens up novel opportunities for optical communication and other kinds of all-optical light control at the nanoscale. We also explore the use of arrayed nanoantennas for nanoscale optical sensing.
