Abstract

We theoretically discuss all-optical switching at the Fano resonances of subwavelength gratings made of a chalcogenide glass ( As 2 S 3 ). Particular attention is devoted to the case in which the grating possesses extremely narrow slits (channels ranging from a 10 nm to a 40 nm ). The remarkable local field enhancement available in these situations conspires to yield low-threshold switching intensities ( ~ 50 MW / cm 2 ) at telecommunication wavelengths for extremely thin ( d 200 nm ) gratings when a realistic value of the As 2 S 3 cubic nonlinearity is used.
