Modulation instability induced by nonlinear dispersion in nonlinear metamaterials

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We show that modulation instability may occur even in the normal group-velocity dispersion regime, or in the case of no group-velocity dispersion in metamaterials with a nonlinear electric polarization. The physical origin of the modulation instability is the additional second-order nonlinear dispersion effect resulted from the combination of the linear dispersive magnetic permeability with the nonlinear electric polarization. Based on the Drude model, a numerical simulation is performed to confirm the theoretical predictions, and a detailed discussion on the role of the second-order nonlinear dispersion effect in modulation instability in both negative-index and positive-index regions of metamaterial is presented.
