Abstract

The excitation of temporal solitons in a metamaterial formed by an array of ε-near-zero (ENZ) plasmonic channels loaded with a material possessing a cubic (χ(3)) nonlinearity are theoretically explored. The unique interplay between the peculiar dispersion properties of ENZ channels and their enhanced effective nonlinearity conspires to yield low threshold intensities for the formation of slow group velocity solitons.
