We propose a new approach towards all-optical active plasmonics based on ordered Au nanodisk arrays embedded in azobenzene-doped liquid crystals (LCs). Upon photoirradiation, the doped LCs went through phase transition induced by trans-cis photoisomerization of the azobenzene molecules. The phase transition led to the change in the refractive index of the LCs experienced by incident light, and enabled reversible tuning of the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) of the embedded Au nanodisks. The tuning utilized the sensitivity of the LSPR of the Au nanodisks to the change in the surroundings' refractive index. Experimental observations on both peak shift and intensity change of the LSPR matched those from discrete dipole approximation (DDA) calculations.
