Network metamaterials with functional connectivity featured on the cover of Advanced Optical Materials

Network metamaterials with functional connectivity featured on the cover of Advanced Optical Materials

In a traditional sense, optical metamaterials are formed from nanostructured “meta-atoms” with a defined unit cell. This imposes harsh fabrication constraints that hamper the ability …

 

Visible spectrometer realized with metasurfaces

Visible spectrometer realized with metasurfaces

Lab-grade spectrometers are typically expensive bench top instruments. This, to a large extent, makes them out of reach for widespread, portable application. Our group recently …

A metalens over a 60nm bandwidth in the visible

Planar lenses based on metasurfaces hold promise to revolutionize optics. However, an issue has traditionally been the so-called “chromatic aberration” inherent in metalenses. Chromatic aberration …

 

Flat Lens for Visible Wavelengths

Flat Lens for Visible Wavelengths

Despite tremendous interest in planar lenses in the visible spectrum, there has been no solution that simultaneously satisfies the demands for high numerical aperture (NA) …
