Abstract:
Optical nanocircuits may pave the way to transformative advancements in nanoscale communications. We introduce here the concept of an optical nanocircuit board, constituted of a layered metamaterial structure with low effective permittivity, over which specific traces that channel the optical displacement current may be carved out, allowing the optical ‘‘local connection’’ among ‘‘nonlocal’’ distant nanocircuit elements. This may provide ‘‘printed’’ nanocircuits, realizing an all-optical nanocircuit board over which specific grooves may be nanoimprinted within the realms of current nanotechnology
