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.

PhotonicsSHA-2D: Modeling of Single-Period Multilayer Optical Gratings and Metamaterials
23 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Xingjie Ni, Zhengtong Liu, Fan Gu, Marcos Gabriel Pacheco, Joshua Borneman, Alexander V. Kildishev
Frequency domain simulation of single-period multilayer gratings and optical metamaterials upon TE/TM plane-wave incidence at arbitrary angles
Plasmonic Metamaterials: Unusual Optics and Applications
out of 5 stars
28 Feb 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Igor Smolyaninov
Surface plasmon-polaritons (or plasmons) are collective excitations of the conduction electrons and the electromagnetic field on the surface of such good metals as gold and silver. Near the frequency of surface plasmon resonance plasmons may perceive regular dielectrics as negative index...
Plasmonic Nanophotonics: Coupling Light to Nanostructure via Plasmons
03 Oct 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir M. Shalaev
The photon is the ultimate unit of information because it packages data in a signal of zero mass and has unmatched speed. The power of light is driving the photonicrevolution, and information technologies, which were formerly entirely electronic, are increasingly enlisting light to communicate...
Plasmonics and Metasurfaces for Extreme Manipulation of Light
07 Mar 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Yongmin Liu
In this talk, I will present some of our work in the fascinating field of plasmonics and optical metasurfaces. First, I will discuss reconfigurable plasmonic lenses operating in microfluidic environment, which can dynamically diverge, collimate and focus surface plasmons . Second, I will...

Short Course on Nanophotonics
25 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Nick Fang
This course is a shortened version of a graduate course offered to MIT students regarding recent advances in photonics science and technology. The course consists of selected topics in fundamental science of nano-optics, with an overview of nanophotonic tools.
Some Remarks to Electrodynamics of Materials with Negative Refraction
26 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Victor G. Veselago
The negative refraction coefficient n < 0 can be introduced for isotropic materials with anti-parallel directions of phase and group velocities. If some of material can be described by negative n it will have also negative values of both (electrical ε and magnetic μ) permeabilities. In materials...
Taming Light and Electrons with Metamaterials
11 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Nader Engheta
In recent years, in my group we have been working on various aspects of metamaterials and plasmonic nano-optics. We have introduced and been developing the concept of "metatronics", i.e. metamaterial-inspired optical nanocircuitry, in which the three fields of "electronics", "photonics" and...
Towards Light-Spin Interface for NV Center in Diamond
17 Mar 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Alexey V Akimov
In this work we present our efforts on using CMOS compatible hyperbolic metamaterials and optical fibers to construct efficient single-photon sources and sensing elements using NV center in diamond.
Transformation Optics at Optical Frequencies
03 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: John Pendry
Metamaterials, i.e. artificial materials with rationally designedgeometry, composition, and arrangement of nanostructured building blocksare opening a gateway to unprecedented electromagnetic properties andfunctionalities that are unattainable with naturally occurringmaterials....
Transmission of images with subwavelength resolution to distances of several wavelengths in microwave, terahertz and infrared ranges
08 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Pavel Belov
The resolution of conventional imaging systems is restricted by thediffraction limit: the details smaller than half-wavelength of radiationcannot be resolved. Using novel engineered media with extreme opticalanisotropy and their waveguiding properties it is possible to overcomethe classical...
