  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. Hyperlens Design Solver

    18 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Matt Swanson, Xingjie Ni, zubin jacob, Alexander V. Kildishev

    Simulates a cylindrical hyperlens design to obtain resulting field intensities

  4. Hyperlens Layer Designer

    03 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Matt Swanson, Alexander V. Kildishev, Xingjie Ni

    Design a hyperlens using concentric cylindrical layers of various materials

  5. Joseph M. Cychosz

    Joe Cychosz began his computing career in 1974 at the University of Illinois where he became an electrical engineer by degree and a programmer by trade while working with the Control Data computer...

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

    19 Dec 2009 | | 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...

  8. Metamaterials, Part 2: Negative-Index, Nonlinear Optics and Super/Hyper-Lenses

    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...

  9. Metamaterials: A New Paradigm of Physics and Engineering

    01 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir M. Shalaev

    Three part lecture on metamaterials. 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...

  10. 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...

  11. 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...

  12. 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....
