    An integrated Fano device based on an silicon-on-insulator compatible photonic–plasmonic hybrid circuit is presented, which mainly consists of an ultracompact plasmonic nanocavity and two Si nanowire waveguides. A controllable Fano resonance is realized in this circuit, which can be explained by three coupled oscillators model. This device may find utility in optical communications, buffering, and sensing.

    In this work, 2D nonlayered selenium nanosheets are fabricated by virtue of the anisotropy of bulk Se itself and probe-sonication liquid-phase exfoliation. The morphology, band gap, optical absorption, crystalline phase, and chemical stability are investigated. Based on these characterizations, the 2D Se nanosheets are realized for ultrafast photonics, and their performance is evaluated.

    Shells of cholesteric liquid crystal can exhibit colorful rings from internal selective reflection. The shell must be thinner at the top than at the bottom, as promoted by buoyancy if the internal liquid has lower density than the liquid crystal. However, such asymmetry is counteracted by the elasticity of the helix, which favors uniform shell thickness.

  4. Strong Coupling in a Photonic Molecule Formed by Trapping a Microsphere in a Microtube Cavity

    A photonic molecule formed by trapping a microsphere into a hollow-core microtube cavity is demonstrated. Whispering gallery mode coupling between two size-mismatched cavities leads to a periodical spectral modulation. The coupling strength can be readily tuned by shifting the excitation position along the tube axial dimension. Mode splitting and anti­crossing feature are observed for inter­actions in the strong coupling regime.

    Electric control of anomalously-refracted waves is demonstrated in a hybrid graphene/metasurface system. Combining two-dimensional apertures based on a concept of Pancharatnam–Berry phase and single-layer graphene, it is shown that the amplitude of anomalously refracted circularly cross-polarized waves can be effectively modulated to a low gate-voltage (< 2.2 V).
