Title: Optoelectronic apparatus enabled by dielectric metamaterials

An array of dielectric resonators is formed on the substrate of an optoelectronic device. Each resonator includes an active medium having an optical transition that is operative in a process of photodetection or photoemission. The dielectric resonators in the array are each dimensioned to provide a resonance that lies substantially at the frequency of the optical transition.
