In this study, we present an all-optical reflection modulator for 2$\mu$m communication band exploiting a nano-gear-array metasurface and a phase-change-material Ge$_2$Sb$_2$Te$_5$ (GST). The reflectance of the structure can be manipulated by altering the phase of GST by employing optical stimuli. The paper shows details on the optical and opto-the...

We report a refractive index sensor comprising of unique T grating on top of periodic nano-cavities. The sensor has two resonant modes sensitive to different regions of the structure with low inter-region interference, hence allows simultaneous detection of two different analytes or more accurate detection of a single analyte. The sensor also provi...

Metasurfaces are thin two-dimensional metamaterial layers that allow or inhibit the propagation of electromagnetic waves in desired directions. For example, metasurfaces have been demonstrated to produce unusual scattering properties of incident plane waves or to guide and modulate surface waves to obtain desired radiation properties. These propert...
