Abstract
A novel and compact metal-insulator-metal (MIM) waveguide coupled with dual hexagonal ring resonators is proposed and theoretically investigated using the temporal coupled-mode theory and finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. The numerical simulation results indicate that when the resonance wavelengths of the two hexagonal ring resonators differ from each other, the plasmon-induced transparency (PIT) phenomenon can be obtained. Furthermore, this plasmonic device is also demonstrated can be used as a logic device which implements the function of fundamental logical operations XOR and XNOR. This device is of significance to optical computing and optical networks-on-chip, and it may help to open up a new field for the application of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs).
