An optical effect analogous to electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) is observed in nanoscale plasmonic resonator systems. The system consists of a slot cavity as well as plasmonic bus and resonant waveguides, where the phase-matching condition of the resonant waveguide is tunable for the generation of an obvious EIT-like coupled resonator-induced transparency effect. A dynamic theory is utilized to exactly analyze the influence of physical parameters on transmission characteristics. The transparency effect induced by coupled resonance may have potential applications for nanoscale optical switching, nanolaser, and slow-light devices in highly integrated optical circuits.
