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...

A Half Century of Nonlinear Optics
22 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Robert W. Boyd
In this talk, we first present a review of the development of the field of nonlinear optics, and we then survey some areas of recent research including quantum imaging and implications of the ability to control the group velocity of light.
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 Metamaterials: Unusual Optics and Applications
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...
