Abstract

The intriguing physics of non-Hermitian systems satisfying parity-time (PT) symmetry has spurred a surge of both theoretical and experimental research in interleaved gain-loss systems for novel photonic devices. In this work, we investigate vertically stacked GaInP PT-symmetric nanodisk resonators arranged in two-dimensional periodic lattice using full-wave numerical simulations and scattering matrix theory. The proposed dielectric metasurface supports lasing spectral singularities with asymmetric reflection and highly anisotropic far-field scattering patterns. It offers a much broader design parameter space to control wavelength, scattering direction, and efficiency of optical emission when compared to the predominantly one-dimentional (1D) or quasi-1D structures studied so far. The proposed system with Q-factor ${\gt}{{10}^5}$ serves as a powerful platform for enhanced light-matter interaction by enabling extensive control of asymmetric light scattering, amplification, and unprecedented localization of electromagnetic fields.
