Description

Metamaterials are artificial materials engineered to provide properties which may not be readily available in nature. These materials usually gain their properties from structure rather than composition, using the inclusion of small inhomogeneities to enact effective macroscopic behavior.

  1. McCoy Lecture: Transforming Light with Metamaterials: A New Paradigm for the Science of Light

    15 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir M. Shalaev

    One of the most unique properties of light is that it can package information into a signal of zero mass and propagate it at the ultimate speed. It is, however, a daunting challenge to bring photonic devices to the nanometer scale because of the fundamental diffraction limit. Metamaterials can...
