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.

3D and 2D Metamaterials at Infrared Optical Frequencies
24 Jun 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Igal Brener, Mohammad Mayy, Amanda Harding
Metamaterials (MM) provide for new ways of manipulating light and achieving complex functionality due to the ability to control the spatial distribution of the permittivity and permeability. This full functionality usually requires complex 3D assemblies of subwavelength resonators that are very...

BNC Annual Research Review: Transforming Light with Metamaterials
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...

Can Plasmonics Help Outpace Quantum Decoherence?
07 Jun 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir M. Shalaev
We discuss an unorthodox way to overcome quantum decoherence by using plasmonics that can speed up quantum processes to the extent that they outpace and thus become immune to decoherence.

Coherent Nonlinear Optical Propagation Processes in Hyperbolic Metamaterials
08 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Alexander K. Popov
Coherence and interference play an important role in classic and quantum physics. Processes to be employed can be significantly enhanced and the unwanted ones suppressed through the deliberately tailored constructive and destructed interference at quantum transitions and at nonlinear optical...
Developments in Metamaterials and Transformation Optics
29 Mar 2010 | | Contributor(s):: David R. Smith
Metamaterials—artificially structured microcircuits that can mimic the electromagnetic response of atoms and molecules—have vastly expanded the opportunities available for the design of electromagnetic structures. Starting in 2000 with the first report of a “left-handed” metamaterial, for which...
