Title Linear Systems Approach to Describing and Classifying Fano Resonances (Postprint).
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 8p
Personal Author G. Khitrova H. M. Gibbs I. Avrutsky J. Sears R. Gibson
Abstract We have shown that asymmetric resonant line shapes derived elsewhere from rigorous electromagnetic calculations and from the two-oscillators model can also be obtained by treating the photonic resonance as a response of a first-order linear system. We have reformulated the line shape equation into a weighted sum of the Fano and Lorentzian line shapes and proposed a two- parameter classification scheme with one parameter being the asymmetry factor in the original Fano formula and the other one being the relative weight of the Fano and Lorentzian line shapes.
