We experimentally demonstrate thermally and electronically tunable nanophotonic devices utilizing metal-insulator phase transitions in VO2. We show that VO2 resonators support switching between dielectric and plasmonic resonances, and that by placing Germanium resonators on VO2 we can achieve a broadband, continuous electronic tuning on reflection, transmission, and absorption resonances.
