Experimental Probing of Photonic Density of States in Hyperbolic Metamaterial


In the metamaterial with hyperbolic dispersion (an array of silver nanowires in alumina membrane) we have observed six-fold reduction of the emission life-time of dye deposited onto the metamaterials surface. This serves as the evidence of the earlier predicted high density of photonic states in hyperbolic metamaterials.Comment: 3 pages, 1 figure
