We present experimental observations of light-controlled resonance effects in microwave whispering-gallery-mode quasi-optical dielectric-semiconductor disk resonators in the frequency band of 5 GHz to 20 GHz arising due to illumination from a light emitting diode (LED) of 50W power range. We obtain huge enhancement of photo-sensitivity (growing with the resonator Q-factor) that makes light-microwave interaction observable with an ordinary light (no laser) at conventional brightness (like an office lighting) in quasi-optical microwave structures at rather long (centimeter-scale) wavelength. We also demonstrate non-conventional photo-response of Fano resonances when the light suppresses one group of resonances and enhances another group. The effects could be used for the optical control and quasi-optical switching of microwave propagation through either one or another frequency channel. © 2015 Author(s).

Ozbay, E.; Aydin, K.; Butun, S.; Kolodziejak, K.; Pawlak, D. (2007)We discuss the possibility of achieving tunable split ring resonators at microwave frequencies. One method is to use varying capacitance values to tune the magnetic resonance frequency. As another method ferroelectric thin ...
Caglayan H.; Bulu I.; Loncar, M.; Ozbay, E. (Optical Society of American (OSA), 2008)In this paper, we investigated one of the promising applications of left-handed metamaterials: composite metamaterial based cavities. Four different cavity structures operating in the microwave regime were constructed, and ...
