Colorful Resonant Coupling

Scientists actively control strongly coupled plasmonic resonators.
Scientists actively control strongly coupled plasmonic resonators.

This image represents the far infrared energy absorbed by a pair of plasmonic resonators embedded in a semiconductor. When the adjacent plasmonic resonators are independently tuned, a complex pattern of absorption peaks emerges indicating strong resonant coupling.
