Abstract:

Bistable behavior of nonlinear composite structures with spherical metallic inclusions embedded in a weakly nonlinear dielectric host as well as coated spherical particles with a metallic core and a nonlinear dielectric shell have been theoretically studied using variational approach. A metal fraction of spherical inclusions causes a surface plasmon resonance. The dielectric perinittivity of the nonlinear host depends on the intensity of the local electric field. It is shown that the bistable behavior can be achieved by adjusting the physical parameters of the constitutive materials.
