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...
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...

McCoy Lecture: Transforming Light with Metamaterials: A New Paradigm for the Science of Light
Metamaterials, Part 2: Negative-Index, Nonlinear Optics and Super/Hyper-Lenses
out of 5 stars
01 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir M. Shalaev
Part 2/3. Metamaterials are expected to open a gateway to unprecedented electromagnetic properties and functionality unattainable from naturally occurring materials, thus enabling a family of new “meta-devices”. In these three lectures, we review this new emerging field and significant progress...
Photonic Metamaterials: From Linear to Nonlinear Optics
14 Dec 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Natalia Litchinitser
Metamaterials open unparalleled opportunities for "engineering" previously inaccessible values of refractive indices from positive to near-zero and even negative values, and new avenues for light manipulation. While an enormous progress has been made in the field of linear optics of uniform...
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...
Transformation Optics at Optical Frequencies
02 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....
