Recent measurements of photon tunneling through nanoholes in a gold film covered with a layer of the nonlinear polymer polydiacetylene have provided strong evidence for “photon blockade” effects similar to the Coulomb blockade phenomena observed in single-electron tunneling experiments. We will report on the control of photon tunneling at one wavelength through nonlinear nanoholes by a second, different, wavelength. Our observations suggest the possibility of building a new class of “gated” photon tunneling devices for all-optical signal processing and computation.
