Abstract
Electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) whose mechanism is in destructive quantum interference has been studied in a plasmonic system of metamaterials. Here we study the relation between the plasmonic EIT and atom EIT in multilevel configurations. For numerical simulations finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method and density-matrix approach have been used. In the analysis, asymmetric EIT in the plasmonic system is studied for the fundamental understanding of geometry-based transparency. The plasmonic EIT has potential for plasmonic switching using on-demand transparency control.
