Title: Correlated Perovskites as a New Platform for Super-Broadband-Tunable Photonics

The electron-doping-induced phase transition of a prototypical perovskite SmNiO 3 induces a large and non-volatile optical refractive-index change and has great potential for active-photonic-device applications. Strong optical modulation from the visible to the mid-infrared is demonstrated using thin-film SmNiO 3. Finally, modulation of a narrow band of light is demonstrated in this paper using plasmonic metasurfaces integrated with SmNiO 3.
