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.

Optical Hyperspace: Light in Hyperbolic Materials
14 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Evgenii Narimanov
Hyperbolic metamaterias are strongly anisotropic composite media that behave as either metals or dielectrics in different directions. They can be fabricated n many different ways, such as metallic layers that are separated from each other by thin dielectric spacers, or using arrays of parallel...

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.
CELL-MET Thrust Area 2 - Nanomechanics: Cell-Integrated Surface Plasmon Resonance

In this presentation, FIU graduate student Maedeh Mozneb explains her work on Nanomechanics in Chen-Zhong Li’s lab.
Novel Plasmonic Materials and Nanodevices for Integrated Quantum Photonics
19 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Mikhail Shalaginov
This research focuses on color centers in diamond that share quantum properties with single atoms. These systems promise a path for the realization of practical quantum devices such as nanoscale sensors, single-photon sources, and quantum memories. In particular, we explored an intriguing...
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...

Laser Filtering, Metamaterials, and Commercializing Through the Lens of the Mythical Person Month
09 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Themos Kallos
In this work we investigate whether optical metamaterials in particular may require more than the typical resources to lead to successful commercialization. We also compare the estimated efforts with other technology commercialization projects of the recent past. ...

Optical Hyperspace: Light in Metamaterials with Hyperbolic Dispersion
03 Nov 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Evgenii Narimanov
The composites with opposite signs of the dielectric permittivity in two orthogonal directions, known as the hyperbolic metamaterials, represent a new "universality class" of optical media, with the light behavior which is qualitatively different from that in either metals or...
