Abstract-Theoretical Analysis of Plasmon-Induced Transparency in Ring-resonators Coupled Channel Drop Filter Systems

The plasmon-induced transparency (PIT) in ring-resonators coupled channel drop filter (CDF) systems is investigated theoretically and numerically in this paper. A coupled mode theory-based transfer matrix method (CMT-TMM) is introduced owning to the symmetric and evanescent coupling, which is confirmed by the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulation results. The drop waveguide provides the necessary optical feedback for the interference effect in realizing the PIT, and a new way for adjusting PIT effect in a fixed structure is also given. Finally, the phase and the group dispersion in the transparency window are discussed for investigating the slow light effect in our systems, and a group index of ~22 is obtained. The proposed plasmonic systems possess both the slow light and the dropping properties and may have potential and flexible applications in fundamental research of integrated plasmonic devices.
